BRIB - Briones Reserve, Orinda, CA, USA
|Station Name||BRIB (BRIB)|
|In Operation||1995/06/23 16:00:00 - Present|
LocationSite is located at the Russell Reservation Field Station of UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources, adjacent to Briones Regional Park in Orinda, California. This is a collaborative site with instrumentation for the BDSN, HFN, BARD, and the USGS strainmeter networks. This site is known as SFRRL in the USGS network.

Vault/Borehole ConditionsThe 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 USGS strainmeter network, is installed at the depth of 162 meters. Above the strainmeters, the 6-component HFN package is installed at a depth of 119 meters. The Guralp CMG-3T seismometer of the BDSN 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.

Data completeness is defined both as "Completeness of observations" and "Cycle slips per observation". "Completeness of Obs." is the number of epochs in the final RINEX file normalized to the expected number. This percentage will go down if time is missing from the RINEX file. "Cycle slips per Obs." is the total number of detected cycle slip normalized to the total number of observations in the RINEX file. This number will increase as the receiver loses lock on satellites more frequently.

The effects of multipath on the data are estimated by parameters for L1 and L2 (MP1 and MP2 respectively); see Estey and Meertens (GPS Solutions, 1999) for derivation. The daily value is the RMS of MP1 and MP2 throughout the day and for all satellites. Higher values indicate a greater prevalence and/or strength of multipathing, i.e. objects on the ground are providing multiple reflection pathways from the satellite to antenna.
