FDSN Network Information

FDSN code ZE (2007-2009) Operated by University of Rochester
Network name AFAR (OldAFAR) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2007 End date Dec. 31, 2009
Short description

14 station array encompass two rift segments in the southern Red Sea rift system. The northern segment ( Dabbahu) was the site of the largest dike intrusion yet captured with InSAR, and it has been the site of ongoing activity since 9/2005. Seismicity monitoring done by using broadband instruments nested within a larger UK array. The combined arrays will be used for seismicity, receiver function, tomography, surface wave, anisotropy, and other experiments
