FDSN Network Information

FDSN code X7 (2010-2014) Operated by Reseau sismologique et géodésique français (RESIF)
Network name PYRenean Observational Portable Experiment (PYROPE) Deployment region France
Start date Jan. 1, 2010 End date Dec. 31, 2014
Short description

Temporary seismic experiments in the Pyrenees and neighbouring areas. Goal: seismic imaging of the lithospheric structure. Backbone: ~45 broadband stations in a 2-D array with ~60 km spacing deployed for ~2.5 years in the Northern side (French side) of the Pyrenees and along the coast of the Bay of Biscay. Sensors: mostly STS-2 and a few CMG3-ESP. Digitizers: mostly Nanometrics Taurus and a few Agecodagis Kephren. The dataset also includes three profiles across the Pyrenees with 20-30 stations each, deployed for 1 year each, 5-7 km interstation spacing. Sensors: Güralp CMG40-T. Digitizers: Nanometrics Taurus.
