Instrumentation

Instrumentation to support portable seismology available from IRIS facilities:

Dataloggers - This section encompasses the equipment which take in data and stores it on some type of non-volatile media.

Power Systems - All the required equipment to keep a seismic station contiously powered throughout it's deployment.

Sensors - The equipment that actually detects and quantifies ground motion. The sensor sends this information to the datalogger through a cable.

Controlled Sources - describing new "Thumper" active source available at PASSCAL.

Seismic Source Facility, University of Texas at El Paso - The Seismic Source Facility (SSF) is a technical resource for the management of active-source seismic projects, providing end-to-end seismic source capabilities for Principal Investigators. The facility focuses on four main objectives: seismic source management, training, liability insurance and proposal support.

Field Procedures - A trove of documents describing siting, installation, servicing, in-field quality control, and demobilization.
