MOBB - Monterey Bay Ocean Bottom, 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.

Location

Site is located on the Monterey Bay ocean floor, Monterey, CA. The station is operated as a collaborative effort with Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). As of 2/27/09, there is an umbilical connecting MOBB to the MARS research node. Data is sent from the node to MBARI via the MARS cable and is then sent back to the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory through the Internet in real time.
