The Anza group at the University of California San Diego operates a broadband seismograph network consisting of 17 three component broadband seismograph stations centered near Anza, California (see map).
The IDA group at the University of California San Diego operates the Global Seismic Network (GSN) which has 40 three component broadband seismograph stations, several of which are located close to the epicenter for this event. The information recorded by their instruments show the waveform arrivals very clearly.
On Saturday, December 25th, 2004 at 4:58:50 PM (PST) we recorded a quake (preliminary Mw 9.1) located off the west coast of Northern Sumatra.
View a significant (preliminary Mw 6.9) aftershock which was recorded on Friday, May 13, 2005 near El Centro.

Initial source parameters for the recent event are shown below. The epicentral distance (distance separating the epicenter and the closest station in the recording network) for Anza is 14698 km (132.08 degrees).
This map shows the mainshock (red star) and any associated aftershocks (orange stars). Anza network stations are yellow triangles.

Of local interest:
We operate a broadband station on Mt. Soledad. At 4:58 PM station SOL recorded the P wave from this event. Here is a view of that event as picked by our analyst. A red P indicates a P wave arrival, a red S indicates an S wave arrival.
