OBS data Sardinian Sea, Dec 2006 - Dec 2007
The Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research in
Bremerhaven, Germany, deployed an OBS in the Ligurian sea
from December 2006 to December 2007. Raw waveform data (mini-SEED format) from that deployment
are found here.
OBS data Ionian Sea, May 2007 - Feb 2008
The OBS Lab of Gibilmanna of the "Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia",
deployed from May 2007 to March 2008 three OBS’s in the southern Ionian
Sea. One of them was funded within the NERIES project and its mini-SEED data are available
A special acknowledgment goes to the Italian Navy and the Italian Coastal Guard for their naval support
to the deployment and recovery operations.
OBS data IPGP, 2007 - 2008
IPGP and GEOSCOPE are operating OBS stations near the Azores, one of them being BB (Trillium 240).
Data from all these stations is available at GEOSCOPE, the BB-OBS
data can be downloaded here as well.
Seismic waveform data Jordan station, 1998-1999
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Natural Resources
Authority (NRA) of Jordan jointly operated seismic station in Jordan in
1998 and 1999. Continuous waveform data from 2 stations (RUW and HIT)
are available through ORFEUS in
(big endian, SPARC) files and in
format. Please notice that both the station codes RUW and HIT, as well as
the network code JO are not registered with NEIC, ISC or FDSN.
Some information about the stations is available here.
Local earthquake waveform data for the greater Alpine region, 1995-2007
This data set contains waveforms of
1533 selected earthquakes
in the greater Alpine region in the periode between 1995/05 and 2007/05 recorded by
13 different national and regional networks
in the Alpine region.
See: Diehl, T., Kissling, E., Husen, S. and Aldersons, F., 2009.
Consistent phase picking for regional tomography models: application to the
greater Alpine region. Geophys. J. Int., 176, 542-554,
Waveform data are availble here in GSE format.
Multiple UJF datasets
The Université Joseph Fourier
in Grenoble, France, has carried out a number of temporary deployments using mobile seismic equipment.
Data from these experiments have been made public available and can be found here.
Each entry contains both metadata and waveform data in SEED format.
Infrasound data LOFAR
Infrasound data measured in the north of Netherlands by the
Large Aperture Infrasound Array (LAIA).
LAIA consists of sixteen microbarometers and has an aperture of 100 km.
The microbarometers are able to measure a period up to 1000 seconds.
LAIA has been installed by the
Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)
in the framework of the radio–astronomical
Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) initiative.
Data are available
here in mini-SEED format.

or any other ORFEUS staff member.
