OHLN - Ohlone Park, Hercules, CA, USA
|Station Name||OHLN (OHLN)|
|In Operation||2001/10/05 00:00:00 - Present|
LocationOHLN is one of five sites installed as a pilot test for the Plate Boundary Observatory, known informally as the Mini-PBO project. This site is known as SFOHL in the USGS Low Frequency Network and is located in Ohlone Park, in Hercules, CA.
NetworkBK, UL, BARD (Mini PBO Network, USGS Low Frequency Network, and Bay Area Regional Deformation Network)
Vault/Borehole ConditionsThe OHLN borehole was the first of the MiniPBO sites to be drilled and was installed on 7/16/2001. The strainmeter is emplaced at a depth of 670.5 ft and the seismometer is at a depth of 645.5 ft. This figure shows the location of equipment in the borehole.

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.
