ScanArray Core (1G 2012-2017)

The ScanArray experiment is a major collaborative effort of institutions in Scandinavia and Germany to map crustal and mantle structure below Scandinavia using a dense temporary deployment of broadband seismometers. Scientific questions to be addressed include (among others): 1. What supports the topographic high of the Scandes? 2. How does lithospheric thickness vary within Fennoscandia? 3. What is the internal fabric of the mantle lithosphere? 4. Are there differences in the crustal structure between the different blocks of Fennoscandia? This data set, termed ScanArray core, comprises the temporary stations deployed by the University of Copenhagen, the University of Aarhus, and the University of Oslo, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ) as part of the ScanArray experiment. Stations within this dataset are deployed for periods between 2 and 4 years. The wider ScanArray dataset additionally includes the multi-use temporary deployments Neonor2 (University of Bergen, NORSAR) and ScanLips3D (University of Leicester), and the permanent networks of Sweden (SNSN), Norway (NNSN), Denmark (DNSN) and Finland (FNSN). As such ScanArray core forms part of the virtual network _SCANARRAY which also includes these other networks. Data is available from the GFZ seismological data archive with network code 1G. Waveform data will be fully opened in early 2020.
