EarthScope SAFOD

In July 2002, scientists from Duke University successfully installed a three component 32 level downhole-seismic array in the pilot hole at the EarthScope SAFOD site in collaboration with Steve Hickman (USGS), Mark Zoback (Stanford University) and the Oyo Geospace Engineering Resources International (GERI) Corporation. High frequency event recordings from this array has been provided by Duke University for archiving at the NCEDC. We converted data from the original SEG-2 format data files to MiniSEED, and have developed the SEED instrument responses for this data set. We are continuing to receive seismic data from the SAFOD Pilot Hole and Main Hole, and will make this data available as resources permit. We anticipate receiving funding from SAFOD in the future to cover the cost of archiving these data.
