KCC - Kaiser Creek, 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.

LocationSite is located near Mammoth Pool in Kaiser Creek, California, and is under the auspices of Southern California Edison. This site is operated cooperatively with UC Santa Cruz.
NetworkBerkeley Digital Seismic Network (BK)
Borehole ConditionsThe instruments are sited on a pier in one of the Southern California Edison tunnels for Mammoth Pool. In winters of especially high rain or snowfall, SCE will open the valve in the back of the tunnel to release water from Mammoth Pool. The noise from the flowing water is extremeley high. After a week or two, the valve will be shut and the noise reduced. The valve was opened in 1996 (Feb), 1997 (Jan), 2000 (May).
