Free Seismic Waveform Analysis – Waves

Waves is a user-friendly earthquake data analysis application for Windows, macOS or Ubuntu, and is available as a free download here, with an ad-free version available for purchase. Scroll down this page for more information.


Waves evolved from our original cross-platform waveform analysis package that was known as eqWave. It is a user-friendly earthquake waveform viewer that allows you to pick earthquake wave arrivals from dozens of seismograph stations in a single view, see frequency spectra and spectrograms, convert between velocity, acceleration and displacement, and much more. Waves will soon include algorithms from eqFocus to bring simple earthquake location and magnitude calculation to everyone. Available for Windows, macOS and Ubuntu. Waves is available for download here and is free to use, with an ad-free version available for purchase.

The video below shows an overview of an older version of eqWave, which demonstrates most of the features of Waves, but for a full explanation of all of Waves’ features, you should download the user manual.
