New data available through ORFEUS EIDA

Data from 4 temporary deployments and 2 OBS stations have become available through EIDA:

  • 3E - Mauritius Seismic Land Station; deployed by the Goethe University (Frankfurt, Germany) between 2012 and 2014 as part of the RHUM-RUM (Réunion Hotspot and Upper Mantle - Réunions Unterer Mantel; www.rhum-rum.net) project. RHUM-RUM was a French-German seismic experiment designed to image the oceanic mantle beneath La Réunion Island.
  • 8A - West Iberia Lithosphere and Astenosphere Structure (WILAS; 2010 - 2012). This temporary network was deployed by the Instituto Dom Luiz (FCUL, Portugal) to complement the seismic network in TopoIberia to western Iberia.
  • 8F - West Fissure and Atacama Fault Seismic Network, deployed by the Freie Universitaet Berlin (Germany) in Northern Chile between 2005-2012.
  • X5 - The Lefkada temporary network was installed after the Lefkada (Mw6.4) 2015 event. Six short period stations were installed (Nov 2015 to Apr 2016) by NOA (Greece).
  • CQ - The Cyprus Broadband Seismological Network added data from two OBS stations located in the Southeastern Mediterranean, equipped with broadband and strong motion sensors at depths of about 2400m and 1600m.
