Site Characterization Studies: October - November 2003
Map of seismic deployments surrounding the SAFOD site from Oct.-Nov., 2003. Note: this map is for informational purposes only, and no claims are made for its accuracy. Also, this map only shows the central part of the Hole Ryberg line, which extends from Camp Roberts on the SW to Coalinga on the NE.
This web page will serve as a single repository and portal for information pertaining to a series of seismological field studies conducted surrounding the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) site in October and November 2003.
Relevant Shots and Data Sets
A list of the sources and array/network data available from SAFOD site characterization studies undertaken at Parkfield from Oct. - Nov. 2003, is given below. Individuals requesting data and/or travel time picks from these arrays should directly contact the PIs listed.
- Hole/Ryberg in-line shots (63 @ 20 - 400 lbs, mostly 200 lb)
- USGS and Hole/Ryberg off-line shots (5 @ 200 - 210 lbs)
- Catchings et al. auger hole shots (mostly 5 lbs)
- Catchings et al. shot guns
- Thurber/Roecker array (PASO; contact Cliff Thurber)
- Hole/Ryberg line (contact John Hole)
- Li/Vidale array (contact Yong-gang Li)
- Catchings/Smithson (contact Rufus Catchings)
- Pilot Hole array (contact Peter Malin)
- Ryberg off-line array (contact Trond Ryberg)
Permanent Networks (NCSN and HRSN data available from N. Calif. Data Center):

- Coordinate Systems: Members of the SAFOD science team have agreed that final data products (e.g., earthquake locations and velocity models) will be portrayed using the UTM projection, North American Datum 1927 (NAD27; the same one used in USSG topographic maps). The web site linked to above was created by Steve Roecker describing how to make the transformation from the various reference frames now in use (e.g., the WGS-84 frame used by most GPS receivers) to UTM/NAD27.
- Elevation Standards: All elevations reported through this web site are in meters above mean sea level, obtained using GPS receivers (with the appropriate corrections) and/or USGS topographic maps and digital elevation models.
