FDSN Network Information

FDSN code YQ (2013-2016) Operated by Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO), Columbia University
Network name Study of Extension and maGmatism in Malawi aNd Tanzania (SEGMeNT) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2013 End date Dec. 31, 2016
Short description

This experiment will acquire a family of geophysical, geochemical and geological observations in and around northern Lake Malawi to test fundamental hypotheses regarding continental rupture. Together, these data will allow us to characterize extensional deformation and magmatism at depth in the crust, mantle lithosphere and upper asthenosphere. These include seismic reflection data, onshore/offshore wide-angle seismic reflection/refraction data, passive seismic data (including body waves and surface waves), seismicity, long-period and wide-band MT data, continuous GPS data, InSAR data, and geochemical data. The IRIS PASSCAL component consists of 40 BB stations and 16 IP stations deployed for a period of 18 months.
