RFSB - Richmond Field Station, Richmond, 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

RFSB is located at the Richmond Field Station of UC Berkeley, a few miles north of the campus.

This station serves both as a borehole site in the Hayward fault network and as a surface installation of an accelerometer in the Berkeley Digital Seismic Network.
