Geometrics Atoms 1-/3-C & Other Instruments Comparisons

Alan Yong
An initial plan to demo of the Geometrics Atoms 3Cs by Koichi Hayashi has evolved to an opportunity to informally compare records from the Geometrics Atoms (with 1C & 3C receivers: 1 Hz?), Geometrics MT-Neo, current- & older-generation Trominos, & the USGS Trillium120/RT130. I”m crossing my fingers (& toes) as I have asked IRIS-PASSCAL to send a Fairfield 3C Nodal, which if luck holds, is expected to arrive on Friday before 8:30 a.m.


Red Sismica Volcan Baru


Michelle Salmon
As part of a wider AuScope project 35 short-period (Lennartz 3D-Lite MkII) seismometers were deployed across the Curnamona Craton in South Australia. Station spacing was approximately 60 km and covers the area of over 100000 square km encompassing the Curnamona Craton and the Adelaide Geosyncline. Stations recorded continuous three component data for a period of 6-8 months. The instruments are capable of recording data from both local and distant earthquakes. The primary aim of this...

David Marti, Ignacio Marzan, Ramon Carbonell, F Fernando Tornos & Martin Schimmel
iTARG3T project is oriented to solve most of the problems that arise during the early and advanced stages of W-Sn-(Ta-Li) exploration, effective ore targeting, and ore processing. We estimate that using the methods proposed here, around ten new mines can be developed and opened, reaching the European self-production on a mid-term time scale. The technical work packages of this project are designed to solve specific problems related to the targeting of the most economically significant...


Ignacio Marzan, Martin Schimmel & Ramon Carbonell
InTarsis is a project of the RawMatCop programme by EIT RawMaterials that is aimed to promote the use of Copernicus data to the raw materials sector. The main objective of InTarsis is combining InSAR and ANI (Ambient Noise Interferometry) for monitoring mining activities impact on ground stability, with the aim of to anticipate potential landslides or collapses. Our test site is Riotinto mine. Our seismic sources are the crushing units, the truck traffic and the...


Alex Brisbourne & Andy Smith
In this project we will address significant aspects of ice stream flow and West Antarctic Ice Sheet stability. Our aims are to provide an observational basis for understanding the fast ice stream flow mechanism and to interpret ice sheet history. Using a hot-water drill we will penetrate an ice stream to its base, sample the ice and the subglacial material, deploy instruments within the ice and the bed, and conduct surface geophysical surveys. Sufficient aperture...

Country wide broadband seismic network

Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory Mini-Array Experiment

Andy Nyblade
In this project, we wil be deploying several small-aperture (~10m) arrays of nodes to asses the utility of high frequency ambient noise tomography for real-time monitoring of hydrologic properties of the shallow subsurface.


Michelle Salmon & Brian Kennet
As part of a wider AuScope project 35 short-period (Lennartz 3D-Lite MkII) seismometers were deployed across the Gawler Craton in South Australia. Station spacing was approximately 60 km and covers the area of over 118000 square km encompassing the Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Stuart Shelf and Torrens Hinge zone. Stations recorded continuous three component data for a period of 6-8 months. The instruments are capable of recording data from both local and distant earthquakes. The...

Southern Alps microearthquake Borehole Array- part 2

Tim Stern, Carolin Boese, Calum J Chamberlain, Konstantinos Michailos & John Townend
We have installed Passcal instrumentation at four sites in addition to the SAMBA borehole array or 10 seismometers in New Zealand's Southern Alps. These data have allowed for detailed microseismicity studies in the region of the Alpine Fault. The 4 further sites have provided data to help us better locate and study the tremor under the Alps.

Yasur Volcano Temporary Deployment, Summer 2016

David Fee, Robin Matoza & Arthur Jolly
The aim of this deployment was to create a dense seismo-acoustic network supplemented by geochemical and visual observation methods to examine Yasur volcano explosions in detail. Some main goals were to examine the directional radiation pattern of volcanic explosions using a novel approach of additional acoustic sensors on an aerostat, conduct high-resolution acoustic source location, and to examine the ballistic hazard associated with explosions. The geophysical deployment consisted of 12 ground-based infrasound sensors (Chaparral model...

BILBY - Australian Cratonic Lithosphere

Sara Rawlinson & Brian Kennet
This array was deployed to examine the lithospheric transitions between the northern and southern Australian cratonic regions and across parts of the intercratonic suture belts. The experiment configuration is designed specifically to connect the Gawler Craton in the south through the Musgrave Block and to the northern side of the Arunta Block, and to connect the Arunta Block with the Mt. Isa Block. 25 Guralp 3ESP sensor were used.

SOC - Southern Australian Craton

Fabrice Fontaine & Brian Kennet
This array was deployed to examine crustal and lithospheric thickness across Southern Australia in a corridor extending from the Curnamona Craton in South Australia to the east coast of Australia, crossing the transition from Precambrian to Phanerozoic belts. Guralp 40T and 3ESP sensor were used with Orion and Earthdata digitisers sampling at 25 samples per second.

CAPRA - Linkage

Anya Reading & Brian Kennett
The CAPRAL array was designed to improve local earthquake location and hence understanding of neotectonics in northwestern Australia. These stations provide a useful framework to improve coverage of the Pilbara craton and the Capricorn orogen. The array consists of 27 site with Guralp CMG-3ESP seismometers and Earthdata digitisers. Sample rates are 25 samples/sec.

West Australian Cratons

Brian Kennet
The 2000-2001 deployment of broad-band instruments is designed to try to understand the crustal variations associated with the cratons of Western Australia and to provide improved coverage of the western part of the continent using surface wave paths to compensate for equipment problems encountered in the later stages of the SKIPPY project. Instruments included Guralp 40T and 3ESP sensors, a STS2 sensor, and Orion and Reftek digitisers. Data was sampled at 25 samples/sec
