POLENET/LAPNET-a seismic array in northern FennoscandiaEntry ID: POLENET_LAPNET
Abstract: POLENET/LAPNET dataset is a set of seismic data recorded by the POLENET/LAPNET seismic array that was in operation on the territory of northern Fennoscandia during the timeframe from 01.05.2008 to 31.09.2009.The array consisted of 36 temporary stations deployed in northern Finland, Finnmark area of Norway and northern Karelia (Russia) and seismic stations of several permanent networks in Finland, ... Sweden and Norway.
The POLENET/LAPNET data set includes:
1) Continuous data of selected permanent seismic networks in the territory of northern Fennoscandia that have the status of the DATA USED BY the IPY:
a) Northern Finland Seismological Network
b) Helsinki University Seismic Network (Finland)
c) Swedish National Seismological Network
d) station ARC0 (NORSAR, Norway)
e) Station KTK of the University of Bergen (Norway).
Continuous data from these stations is not all available from the European seismic data centre ORFEUS, but will be specifically prepared for distribution in association with the LAPNET/POLENET experiment.
2) Continuous data of temporary seismic array installed on the territory of northern Finland, northwestern Russia and Finnmark area of Norway. The map of the array and description of instruments can be found in page:
The data if the POLENET/LAPNET temporary stations is considered as DATA GENERATED BY THE IPY.
