FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XS (2010-2011) Operated by Reseau sismologique et géodésique français (RESIF)
Network name Maule Earthquake (Chile) Aftershock Experiment (MAULE) Deployment region France
Start date Jan. 1, 2010 End date Dec. 31, 2011
Short description

After the 2010 maule earthquake mainshock, 41 seismological SISMOB’s stations were deployed: 26 CMG40 HH, 14 CMG5 HN and 1 Episensor HN sensors, all connected to 24 bits Taurus acquisition systems. The stations were installed on rocky sites and their location was defined following the information provided by USGS on rupture extension and aftershocks localization. All the stations are in continuous recording mode, at 100 Hz. The stations were spread along the Chilean coast, and a special attention was paid to the boundaries of the rupture between the 1960 (Valdivia, Mw 9.5) et 2010 earthquakes toward the South, and the 1985 (Valparaiso, Mw 7.8) and 2010 earthquakes toward the North.
