First of Cascadia Year 4 Data Available

Monday, November 16, 2015

The Cascadia Initiative community seismic experiment marine deployment occurred offshore Washington and Oregon, with ocean bottom seismometers deployed and recovered from 2011 to 2015. Instruments that were deployed came from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Data from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) instruments recovered in August and September of 2015 are archived and publicly available under station code 7D at the IRIS DMC. This data can be accessed using all IRIS DMC request tools. Data includes:

  • 24 WHOI broadband stations (high-rate data filtered at 3 Hz, raw 1 Hz, and DPG channels - unfiltered high-rate Navy redacted data still to come)
  • 10 WHOI episensors (high-rate data filtered at 3 Hz and raw 1 Hz - unfiltered high-rate Navy redacted data still to come)
