FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XC (2003-2005) Operated by Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory (ASL)/USGS
Network name Geodynamics of the Tibetan Plateau and the Origin of Great Earthquakes in Western China (Tibetan Plateau) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2003 End date Dec. 31, 2005
Short description

We propose a collaborative USGS/CSB program to determine the S-wave velocity structure of the crust and upper mantle of the northeastern Tibeat Plateau of western China. In order to achieve this goal, we will provide 10 broadband seismic instruments to the China Seismological Bureau (CSB) to be installed along two linear transects. The broadband stations to be deployed in western China will be valuable for a wide range of seismological studies, and will contribute to the assessment of earthquake hazards in the region. These data will allow us to conduct the following studies: (see notes section)
