BDM - Black Diamond Mines Park, Antioch, CA, USA
We operate broadband and borehole stations under the network code BK. The Berkeley Digital Seismic Network (BDSN) is a regional network of very broadband and strong motion seismic stations designed to monitor regional seismic activity as well as provide high quality data. The Berkeley borehole stations have borehole geophones or other seismic sensors and may have other geophysical instrumentation.

The instruments are sited approximately 150 meters into an old mine tunnel. There is a ~100 meter overburden composed of sandstone, shale, and coal, which limits thermal fluctuations. In addition, 7 centimeters of foam cover the instruments.
