The Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool (OBSIP)
The U.S. National Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool provides instrumentation to support research to further our understanding of marine geology, seismology and geodynamics. Funded through the NSF, the Pool makes ocean bottom seismic equipment available to all interested researches, to private and public organizations, and to industry.
The International OBS Town Hall at the 2016 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting hosted 16 speakers representing 7 different countries. Titles, speakers, and presentations are now available on the OBSIP website.
The Ocean Bottom Seismology Symposium in Vancouver, WA, was attended by over 100 participants and featured 18 talks covering a wide range of research topics. Specifications for future OBS instrumentation were also discussed.
OBSIP has created a mailing list for ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) related information and technical discussion of OBS issues. All subscribers are encouraged to contribute. Click here to sign up and join the conversation.
