Seismic Wave Showing P-wave and S-wave Initiation

Detailed Description

In this example of an earthquake recording, the three deep-learning models focus on 1) finding the arrival times of the seismic waves, 2) identifying the P-waves and S-waves, and 3) determining the distance from the station to the earthquake epicenter from the number of seconds between the P-wave and S-wave arrival times.
