CMB - Columbia College, Columbia, CA, USA
Site of CMB vault
1986/10/25 00:00:00 - Present
STS-1 installation at CMB
Site is located on the campus of
in Sonora, California. This site was established to relocate
instrumentation from the JAS1 in Jamestown.
CMB was upgraded with partial funding from the IRIS Consortium and data are archived at the IRIS Data Management Center as well as the NCEDC. CMB is also a cooperative station with the Advanced National Seismic System.
Paleozoic marine limestone
- Vault/Borehole conditions:
The vault is a buried fiberglass cylinder,
eight feet in diameter and
six feet deep. It has a flat top at grade
level with a hatch for entry. The floor
is concrete poured directly on rock.
The datalogger and supporting
equipment are located in an air
conditioned trailer located about 70
feet from the vault and connected via
underground conduits. The
seismometers are thermally
insulated with 4" of polyurethane
foam and the top of the vault is
covered with bark for additional
