The draft agenda for the WG I meeting is listed below:

A tentative statement is proposed below, which will be discussed during the meeting:
"A subset of 250 (need more?) stations chosen on the basis of hardware standards (VBB or BB and VLP, 3-component, dynamic range greater than 100db), noise characteristics, geographical location, and status (installed or installation imminent)."
The current _FDSN backbone stations can be found at
(Note that 38 stations there are not available Right Now.)
12:35 Replacement of the FDSN station inventory which was maintained in an excel file.
12:50 A quick report of the performance of the FDSN backbone stations
(Do we need to increase the number of FDSN backbone stations? If yes, how many?)
13:20 Other business
If there are any items you think we should discuss in the meeting as well, please just let me know that.
See you soon,
