Short description

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 primary aim of this arrays is to increase data coverage in this part of Australia for seismic imaging. There are few permanent seismographs in the region covered by this array. This area of South Australia is also seismically active and local earthquake data recorded on this array will help improve our ability to locate and characterize these events.
