The Electronic Seismologist (ES) has been known to actually do some research in the field of seismology from time to time. As an operator of a seismic monitoring network the research done often is related to the seismicity of the monitored region. Detecting changes or trends in seismicity is relevant to earthquake and volcano hazards, but are the trends detected real or only an artifact of changes in the network operating parameters? Because all seismic networks evolve, change staff, change software and hardware, there is always the nagging feeling, if not outright knowledge, that interesting patterns in the catalog reflect...
