FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 8H (2015-2017) Operated by Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ (GFZ Potsdam)
Network name East Pamir Deployment region Germany
Start date Aug. 9, 2015 End date May 19, 2017
Short description

The East Pamir seismic network was located on the eastern flank of the Pamir highlands and the in the foreland of the adjacent Tarim Basin of western China. It was in operation between August 2015 and May 2017 and consisted of 30 broad band, 3-component seismometers of type G├╝ralp CMG-3ESP or Nanometrics Trillium 120. The data were recorded using Earth Data PS6-24 "EDL" recorders, continuously at a sample rate of 100Hz, with an average station distance of ~20km. The network was designed to augment the earlier TIPAGE and TIPTIMON seismic networks.

The principal aim of the network was to characterize the current deformation field in the region. It further recorded the 2015 M7.2 Sarez earthquake.
