Two transects (25 broadband sensors) across the Semail Ophiolite were deployed to constrain the crustal structure of the northern UAE-Oman mountain range. 7 locations are occupied by Guralp 3ESPCD sensors, while the remaining are Nanometrics Posthole 120.
The network is composed of 9 temporary seismic stations within the Mugello basin (Northern Apennines, Italy). The aim of the experiment is to integrate observations from the permanent local stations with this new network to better study seismic activity and the active fault systems to characterize their geometry and kinematics. The instruments installed are the Guralp 40TD Broadband sensors and the Guralp DCM/EAM Data Loggers.
UCSB has been operating densely instrumented geotechnical array field sites in California for the last 25 years. The funding source for the operations of these engineering seismology research facilities has been primarily through the U.S. Federal Government, including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
