Dear All

Once again, we have received a request for membership, but this time from the Botswana Seismological Network (BSN) operated by Botswana Geoscience Institute.

The BSN consists of 21 Broadband stations that were installed between 2014 and 2017 across the country. Eighteen (18) of these are telemetered, sending near-real time data to the server at the BGI in Lobatse. The other three (3) are stand-alone, being located in remote areas without cellphone network. In November 2018, the BSN started sending real-time data to IRIS DMC.

Thus, they also agree to the requirement for FDSN membership:
"Membership in the FDSN is open to all groups that operate more than one broad-band station. Members agree to coordinate station siting and provide free and open access to their data (normally in SEED format)."

At our last meeting, we decided that, should we receive applications for membership, we could send out an email for voting.

Each member of the FDSN will have one vote. A majority of 2/3 voting members will be required for an affirmative vote. Five members of the FDSN will constitute a quorum.

Please could you send me your votes by no later than 26 April 2019 in order for us to make a decision.

Thank you for you cooperation.
Kind regards

FDSN Representatives
