FDSN Network Information

FDSN code ZM (2003-2004) Operated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT GIP Germany)
Network name Uraban Seismology (URS) Deployment region Germany
Start date Jan. 1, 2003 End date Dec. 31, 2004
Short description

The Urban Seismology (URS) project was conducted in Bucharest, the capital of Romania, whose 2.5 million inhabitants are endangered by devastating earthquakes from the nearby Vrancea subduction zone.
The measurements within the URS project were conducted with the KArlsruhe BroadBand Array (KABBA) owned by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. These stations were deployed at 34 different sites within the metropolitan area of Bucharest from 2003 October to 2004 August. The instruments were mainly located in cellars of public and private buildings. This network recorded continuously the ground motion velocity with a sampling rate of 100 Hz during 10 months.
