Abstract: The main goal of the ALERT-ES project (“Sistema de Alerta Sísmica Temprana: Aplicación al Sur de España”) is to study the feasibility of an Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS) for SW Iberian Peninsula applied to the potentially damaging earthquakes that occur in the region of Cape S. Vicente-Gulf of Cadiz. This area is characterized by the occurrence of large earthquakes with damage in SW Iberia, such as those of 1755 Lisbon (Imax=X) and 1969 S. Vicente Cape (Ms=8,1). The project has two different parts: the development of algorithms for the rapid estimation of the magnitude from the very beginning of P-waves for S. Vicente Cape- Gulf of Cadiz earthquakes and the development of the corresponding new software modules, dealing with detection, event declaration and location, and their implementation in EarthWorm and SeisComP platforms integrated in a real time system. A pilot experience will be carried out in the last months of the project.
