FDSN Network Information

FDSN code YP (2012-2013) Operated by Institut des Sciences de la Terre
Network name CIFALPS Deployment region France
Start date Jan. 1, 2012 End date Dec. 31, 2013
Short description

Temporary seismic array of broadband stations deployed along a transect across the southwestern Alps (France and Italy). Duration: 14 months. 46 stations in the linear array from the Rhone valley to the central Po plain; 5 to 10 km spacing. 9 offline station at ~40 km distance north and south of the linear array. Goal: imaging of the crust and upper mantle using earthquakes and noise records. Sensors: mostly Nanometrics Trillium-120, with a few Güralp CMG3ESP (90s) and Güralp CMG40T (60s). Digitizers: Nanometrics Taurus.
