FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 1B (2016-2017) Operated by Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI)
Network name Knipovich Ridge Passive Seismic Experiment (KNIPAS) Deployment region Germany
Start date July 21, 2016 End date Oct. 14, 2017
Short description

Network of 27+3 broadband Ocean Bottom Seismometers installed along Knipovich Ridge to record local seismicity connected with mid-ocean ridge spreading processes. 20 km instrument spacing, denser around volcano. Instruments stem from the German DEPAS pool plus 3 Polish OBS. 4 of the 27 instruments reoccupy locations of other sensors for an active seismic experiment on the central volcano. Recording period 11 months for longterm OBS and 1 month for short-term replacement. Sampling frequency mostly 50 Hz, 100 Hz near volcano on selected stations. Instrumentation: G├╝ralp CMG 4T 60s-50Hz
