Broadband Experiment Across the Alaska Range
Entry ID: PASSCAL_BEAAR

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This is a RESTRICTED data set.

This 2.5 year passive broadband experiment seeks to understand what
holds up Mt McKinley and the Alaska Range. We will deploy instruments
over much of the road system in central Alaska between Anchorage and
Fairbanks. In late May 1999, we begin deploying 7 stations at 50 km
spacing for 2.5 years. An additional 29 instruments will fill in the
line during spring and summer of 2000, at nominal 10 km spacing; 10 of
these will be redeployed for summer 2001. All will record both
teleseismic and local events.
