FDSN Network Information

FDSN code BX Network name Botswana Seismological Network (BSN)
Start year 2001 Operated by
End year - Deployment region

BSN comprises of 21 broadband seismic stations spaced at around 200km across Botswana. These stations record any earth tremors and are telemetered to relay the information at close to real-time to BGI data centre in Lobatse for processing. Products from this work include seismicity maps used by the public to determine the earthquake vulnerability of different areas before putting up structures and buildings. The seismometers used in the BSN are the Nanometrics Trillium 120 and the Streckeisen STS-2 broad band sensors together with The NARS data loggers.
