Network Description Owner Dates
YK00 - Coordinated Seismic Experiment in the Azores A 5-station broadband array (STS2 w/Reftek dataloggers) provided by DTM, installed with help from ETH, and Instituto Metreorologia, Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal was in operation from December 2000 - September 2002. Site locations selected to utilize existing stations operated by the Portuguese (CMLA (an IRIS/GSN station) and CDRO (operated by Centro de Geofisica da Universidadede Lisboa)) and French (FLOR (operated by Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris)); placed on both sides of the mid-Atlantic ridge; and as a westward extension of the MIDSEA experiment. This deployment is aimed at understanding a) the Azores plume (the crust and upper mantle structure); b) the behavior of the boundries between Eurasia, Africa, and North America; and c) monitoring local seismic and volcanic activity for improved natural hazards assesment. 2000-10-11 / 2002-12-31
