FDSN Network Information

FDSN code YJ (2001-2003) Operated by IRIS/PASSCAL
Network name Ethiopia-Afar Geoscientific Lithospheric Experiment (EAGLE) Deployment region
Start date Jan. 1, 2001 End date Dec. 31, 2003
Short description

The EAGLE Phase 1 experiment consisted of the deployment of c. 30 broadband seismometers for a period of 16 months over 250 x 250 km^2 are of the northern Ethiopian Rift. The primary aim is to improve images of the crust and upper mantle in an area of transistion from continental rifting to incipient oceanic spreading in Afar using P & S-wave tomography, receiver functions and S-wave splitting.
