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.
