Work on the borehole
Site is located at the
Russell Reservation Field Station
of UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources,
Briones Regional Park in Orinda, California.
This is a collaborative site with instrumentation for the
This site is known as SFRRL in the USGS network.
- Vault/Borehole conditions:
The instruments are sited in a borehole located on the Russell Reservation.
Geophysical instruments are installed at three levels in the 108-meter deep
hole. A dilatometer strainmeter, part of the
strainmeter network, is installed at the depth of
162 meters. Above the strainmeters, the 6-component
package is installed at a depth of 119 meters.
The Guralp CMG-3T seismometer of the
is installed at a depth of 35 meters. The FBA-23 is
installed at the surface of the borehole. The
BARD GPS receiver
is located up the hill.
On 11/19/1996, the Seismological Laboratory installed a second CMG-3T in a small tank at the surface. Data recording of this sensor replaced the borehole instrument. This site experienced frequent tilts, primarily due to changes in ground water content. In the fall of 2000, BSL engineers installed a post-hole and relocated the Guralp CMG-3T from the borehole to this site. Recording of the post-hole installation began on 12/20/2000. The Guralp in the surface tank has been removed.
