Seismic Experiment in Patagonia and Antarctica - continuous broadband seismic data
Entry ID: SEPA_waveform_data

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Project SEPA deployed 11 Broadband seismic stations in Chilean
Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula region from January, 1997 - May,
1999. Four stations remained deployed from May, 1999-November, 2001.
Stations operated year around, although reliability was marginal
during the winter. The recording system consisted of Streckeisen
STS-2 seismographs and Reftek 72A-08 digital aquisition systems, with
GPS timing. Data were recorded continuously at 1 sps and at either 25
or 40 sps. Further information may be obtained at
http://levee.wustl.edu/seismology/SEPA . The data at the IRIS DMC
consists of the raw seismic records with timing corrections applied,
and is distributed in SEED format.

Specific station locations are as follows:
FELL Estancia Brazo Norte, Patagonia -52.0568 -70.0047
HAMB Puerto del Hambre, Patagonia -53.6140 -70.9309
MILO Cueva del Milodon, Patagonia -51.5680 -72.6170
