FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XI (2006-2006) Operated by IRIS HQ (DC)
Network name Characterization of High Frequency Noise Generated at the South Pole Station, Antarctica (South Pole Noise) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2006 End date Dec. 31, 2006
Short description

This is a high frequency analysis of the seismic noise created at the South Pole station by tractors, generators, structures and other human activities. This is intended to help identify the spectral characteristics of the noise observed at the GSN station QSPA located at the South Pole Remote Earth Science and Seismological Observatory (SPRESSO) and determine the detrimental affects of moving experiments into the Quiet Sector.
This analysis is in response to an NSF request to quantify the degradation in signal expected if these sources were to move closer to the QSPA station.
