FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XV (2014-2019) Network name Fault Locations and Alaska Tectonics from Seismicity (FLATS)
Start year 2014 Operated by
  • University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF), United States of America
End year 2019 Deployment region

The 5-year project proposes a deployment of 13 broadband stations for four years to target local seismicity occurring within and below Nenana basin, an active backarc basin in central Alaska. The basin is associated with Minto Flats fault zone, which contains two main fault strands. The principal goals of the project are to characterize the 3D structure of the fault zone, through seismicity studies, and to understand the relationship between deep crustal faulting and active basin formation. No station, short period or broadband, has ever been deployed in the vicinity of the basin.
