FDSN Network Information

FDSN code Z6 (2006-2008) Operated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT GIP Germany)
Network name Mantle Investigations of Norwegian Uplift Structures (MAGNUS) Deployment region Germany
Start date Jan. 1, 2006 End date Dec. 31, 2008
Short description

A temporary deployment of a seismological network in Southern Norway (the MAGNUS experiment: Mantle InvestiGations of Norwegian Uplift Structures) was therefore conducted with stations. This experiment will improve the ground of data-based interpretation. Over a period of 22 months between 2006 and 2008, a total of 41 broadband seismometers (including permanent stations in the region) were continuously operating. Data analysis is under way since early 2009 within the ESF EUROCORES programme TOPOEUROPE. The collaborative research project TopoScandiaDeep ¿ the Scandinavian mountains: deep processes0 aims at developing a self-consistent geophysical model for the lithosphere asthenosphere system under Southern Norway and at understanding the mechanisms that led to mountain building far away from the plate boundary. Within the project, the results from the seismological analysis of the MAGNUS data will provide the boundary conditions for geodynamic modelling.
