A complete description of the SRO system can be found in Peterson et al. (1976).
Due to frequent violent thunderstorms in the area where the borehole seismometer
is installed, plus political problems in Columbia, there are many gaps in the
seismic data. The station became inoperative on 11 Nov 1987.
