FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 5G (2004-2010) Network name Dongbei Broadband Network (DBN)
Start year 2004 Operated by
  • Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University (LDEO), United States of America
End year 2010 Deployment region -

16-station broadband seismographic network was deployed in northeastern China along the North Korea - China border during June 2004 and September 2010. The network had been deployed to study geophysical property in the region, particularly the Paekdusan (Changbei shan) volcano region. The stations consist of CMG-40T and CMG-3ESP broadband sensors with Orion and Taurus dataloggers from Nanometrics, Canada. Digital data were recorded continuously with a rate of 100 samples/s. The PI of the network was Dr. Kin-Yip Chun - formerly of University of Toronto, Canada and local staff at the Seismic Bureaus of Jilin and Lianing Provinces in China maintained the network. In a recent year, Kin-Yip Chun sent hard disk drives with raw data to Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University for developing database suitable for archiving and further dissemination. Drs. Paul Richards, Won-Young Kim, and David Schaff at Lamont contributed to build the database.
