FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XS (2016-2017) Operated by University of Southampton (UK)
Network name Passive Imaging of the Lithosphere-Asthenosphere Boundary (PILAB) Deployment region United Kingdom
Start date Feb. 27, 2016 End date Feb. 27, 2017
Short description

The science team will systematically image the entire length of an oceanic plate, from its birth at the Mid Atlantic Ridge to its oldest formation on the African margin. This is a large-scale focused effort with multiple scales of resolution and sensitivity, from a metre to kilometre scale using seismic and electromagnetic methods. This scale, focus, and interdisciplinary approach will finally determine the processes and properties that make a plate strong and define it. The project will be accomplished through a large, focused international collaboration that involves EU partners (3.5 M euro) and industry (6.4M euro), both already funded.
