FDSN Network Information

FDSN code IE Operated by Idaho National Laboratory (INL)
Network name INL Seismic Monitoring Program Deployment region United States
Start date Oct. 1, 1972 End date -
Short description

The INL Seismic Monitoring Program provides earthquake data and staff expertise in support of requirements set forth by Presidential executive orders, Department of Energy (DOE) directives, orders and standards, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for seismic safety of workers and the public with regard to nuclear related operations at INL. The program supports safety of operations through continuous monitoring of earthquake activity, the development of INL seismic design criteria, assessments of seismic hazards for existing facilities and new facility siting, and early warning of potential future volcanic activity near INL. As of 2016, the INL operates 33 permanent seismic stations with either short period or broadband sensors and 33 accelerometers. Eight accelerometers are located within INL buildings and eleven of the accelerometers are located at freefield sites (i.e., not within buildings) near INL facilities. Fourteen accelerometers are collocated with seismic stations located on the Eastern Snake River Plain and in the surrounding Basin and Range region.
