Start date May 5, 2015 End date April 5, 2016
Short description

This request is for a rapid response following the Mw 7.9 earthquake of April 25, 2015 in Nepal. The goal is to deploy a 20-station network in the greater epicentral area of the mainshock to record its aftershocks. We expect to operate the network for full 6 months after its deployment is completed. This experiment will combine geodetic and seismological observations. PASSCAL data from this project will be released to the public within 1 month after the array is uninstalled.
