Experiment Planning

The Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool (OBSIP) provides and operates ocean bottom seismometers instruments to support research on the structure and tectonics of the ocean basins, their margins, and the dynamics and structure of the Earth's interior. Funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF), the pool makes ocean bottom seismic equipment available to NSF investigators, and to investigators at research or educational institutions with other government, private or industry funding.
