FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XI (2005-2005) Operated by Imperial College London (Imperial UK)
Network name 3D Tomographic Imaging of the Chicxulub Crater (CHIX05) Deployment region United Kingdom
Start date Jan. 1, 2005 End date Dec. 31, 2005
Short description

A large scale 3D tomographic seismic survey was carried out over a quadrant of the buried Chicxulub impact crater in Mexico. This impact has been associated with mass extinctions and environmental change. Major targets include the geometry of the central uplift, the ratio of melt to suevitic breccia, the geometry and lateral extent of transient cavity collapse, the volume of the excavation cavity, and the nature of the peak ring.
Start date: 2005 JAN 01 End date: 2005 FEB 28
