PASSCAL Experiments http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/rss/experiments en ENAM CSE http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201407 The project is an active-source and broadband, onshore and offshore seismic experiment that is focused on the East Coast margin around Cape Hatteras. The study area, encompasses the rifted margin, from unextended continental lithosphere onshore to mature oceanic lithosphere offshore, as well as along-strike changes in margin structure and two major fracture zones that are associated with significant offsets at the modern Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The study also covers several features representing the post-rift modification of the margin by slope instability and fluid flow. North Texas Earthquakes http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201541 This is a continuation of the current North Texas Earthquake study using temporary networks. This particular deployment is to follow the activity near Venus Texas about 60 miles south of the southern most current station. We anticipate keeping the network code the same (ZW) and combining this deployment with the current temporary network. CWU Seismology http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201515 Graduate Level Seismology Class Laboratory Component Namibia http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201508 A ten-station BB network will be installed and operated across the northern half of Namibia for 2 years. The project is supported by De Beers. The BB sensors will be provided by Nyblade and Grand. Nyblade will also supply some RT130s. The remainder of the RT130s plus power boards and solar panels are requested from Passcal. This network will complement a 20-station network that is being installed using NARS equipment in Botswana. Mark van der Meijde from the Univ. of Twente in the Netherlands is the lead PI on that project, and Nyblade is a co-PI. The combined networks (Botswana + Namibia) will fill in a large data gap in SW Africa. AAA (triple A) http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201502 Four mini seismic arrays will be installed in Unalaska Island. They will image a variety of seismic events from the subduction zone including tremor, low frequency earthquakes associated with slow earthquakes and regular fast earthquakes. They will also capture events from nearby volcanoes (Makushin and Akutan) allowing us to better understand the volcanic plumbing systems. The arrays are designed to simultaneously image both subduction and volcanic system.

The students will design and carry out small research projects using portable seismic instruments and other geophysical techniques to record and study dynamic processes at Mount St. Helens. This experimental outreach program is part of Kate Allstadt's NSF Postdocoral fellowship starting in September, 2014 at the USGS Cascade Volcano Observatory. North Texas Earthquake Study http://www.passcal.nmt.edu/scheduledetails/exptnumb/201519 Recording earthquakes in North Texas in order to refine the locations and depths. All data to be immediately open.
