FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XK (1996-1996) Operated by IRIS/PASSCAL
Network name Chicxulub Impact Crater, Yucatan (Chicx) Deployment region
Start date Jan. 1, 1996 End date Dec. 31, 1996
Short description

To record seismic data from local regional and teleseimic data over the chicxulub impact structure. To study this data and determine if any anisotropy can be detected in the crust due to radial or concentric fracturing caused by the impact. To determine the shallow rustal structures by analysing data from local and regional events and to determine the deep crustal structure from analysis of teleseimic events.
