FDSN code 7W (2022-2023) Network name VECTOR seismic array in the Irish Midlands
Start year 2022 Operated by
  • GEOFON Program (GFZ-Potsdam, Germany), Germany
End year 2023 Deployment region -

A network of 210 continuously running, digital seismic stations equipped with short-period sensors (200 stations) and broadband sensors (10 stations) was deployed in an area of ~8 x ~6 km in the Irish Midlands (north of Collinstown) for a time period of ~6 weeks. The network was part of the EU project VECTOR ( aiming to investigate – among others – possible solutions for least invasive forms of exploration for mineral resources. In this context the collected data was mainly used to derive a 3D model of the subsurface (seismic shear wave velocity) using ambient noise tomography (down to ~1.5km depth).
We thank all field crews for their excellent work rendered to the project
