HELL - Private Property, Miramonte, CA, USA
|Station Name||HELL (HELB)|
|In Operation||2005/04/09 00:00:00 - Present|
LocationSite is located on private property in the Sierra Nevada foothills east of Fresno, CA.
This station was installed in March 2005 by USArray personnel as a collaboration with the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, and was part of the USArray component of the Earthscope program. When the Travelling Array left California in 2007, the BSL adopted this station. It has been operating as a BDSN station since March 2008.

Vault/Borehole ConditionsThe HELL installation is based on the USArray vault design.

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.
