FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XS (2002-2002) Operated by University of Memphis, CERI
Network name Embayment Seismic Excitation Experiment (ESEE) Deployment region United States of America
Start year 2002 End year 2002
Short description

2600lb and 5000lb explosions were detonated within the New Madrid Seismic Zone at 2 locations to excite fundamental and higher mode surface waves within the sediments of the Mississippi embayment. The existing seismic network was augmented by the 8 PASSCAL instruments. A second piggy-back experiment was performed in November 25-27 to record ambient noise with a phased array to evaluate the H/V ratio of the sediments at the northern explosion location.
