RAMR - Ramage Ranch, Paso Robles, 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 Ramage Ranch, private property in the Central California Coast Ranges north of San Luis Obispo, CA.

This station was installed in June 2004 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 September 2007.
