FDSN Network Information

FDSN code Z9 (2010-2014) Operated by Brown University
Network name Southeastern Suture of the Appalachian Margin Experiment (SESAME) Deployment region United States
Start date July 1, 2010 End date May 31, 2014
Short description

The goal of this experiment is to understand crust and mantle seismic structures in the southeastern U.S. associated with the suturing of Laurentia and Gondwana and subsequent continental rifting.
