FDSN Network Information

FDSN code ZD (2007-2009) Operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)
Network name Seismcity of Quebrada-Discovery-gofur- Transforms ( QDG) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2007 End date Dec. 31, 2009
Short description

Will determine the seismogenic properties that make oceanic transforms unique, such as abundant foreshocks before large earthqueakes, slow ruptures and large variations in fault seismic coupling. thirty broadband ocean bottom seismographs (OBS) and ten short OBS will be deployed for 1yr within and immediately about the Quebrada, Discovey and Gofar transform faults that offset the East Pacific rise. In addition acive source arrivals will be recorded along two 100 km long lines of 2 short period OBS.
