POLENET/LAPNET-a seismic array in northern Fennoscandia

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, ...
