The Working Group on Siting Plans was formed shortly after the founding meeting of the FDSN in 1986 and was chaired by Bob Engdahl until 2000. (Kaye Shedlock became chair in 2001.) In 1997 the scope of the working group was expanded to include issues related to instrumentation.
The goal of the working group as stated in the FDSN Terms of Reference is “coordinating the siting of additional stations in locations that will provide optimum geographical coverage”.
Areas of interest to the working group include:
