The Swedish National Seismic Network (SNSN) was modernized and rapidly expanded during the period 1998–2012. The network currently operates 68 permanent seismic stations, all with broadband instruments supplying real‐time continuous data at 100 samples per second. Continuous data from 10 stations are shared with the international community via Orfeus, and approximately 10 stations of their individual choice are shared with institutes in neighboring countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Germany). The SNSN uses the South Iceland Lowland (SIL) system as the primary system for automatic detection and event definition. In addition, an in‐house system based on migration and stacking is used for automatic detection of small events, and implementations of SeisComP (SC) and Earthworm are used primarily for rapid detection of larger regional events. Global monitoring is performed with SC, using approximately 250 global stations, and we operate a continuous rapid risk assessment system serving Swedish crisis management authorities. Since the start of automatic processing in August 2000, the SNSN has recorded and interactively analyzed more than 171,000 seismic events, of which 10,700 were earthquakes with local magnitudes ranging from around −1 to 4.3. The microearthquake activity detected in the last 20 yr has significantly improved the identification and understanding of seismically active structures in Sweden.
