The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced that the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) will operate a new center to provide seafloor seismographs and technical support to the U.S. academic community beginning in August 1, 2018. The new Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Center (OBSIC) will be housed at WHOI under a 5-year cooperative agreement, with John Collins serving as Director. The OBSIC replaces the Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool. This OBSIP website is no longer updated and will be removed in July 2019.
All past, present and future OBSIP Schedules are made publicly available here. Please note that these schedules only incorporate planned, funded experiments and are subject to change without notice at any time. These schedules are posted to provide general guidance regarding the planned use of the OBSIP facility and should not generally be used for 'timed' planning of future experiments. At any given time, multiple, unfunded experiments may be being 'considered' by OBSIP for any given slot of availability. Please refer to the OBSIP Instrument Use Policies and Procedures when planning experiments.
