Temporary seismological network in Longmenshan, LONGMEN (2012/2013)

From June 2012 to November 2013, the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS) together with the Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ) operated an array of 80 broadband seismic stations in a 300 km by 150 km area straddling the Longmenshan fault zone around the epicentre of the Wenchuan earthquake. Since the occurrence of the Ms 8.0 Wenchuan earthquake which ruptured about 300 km of the Longmenshan fault zone in May 2008, this region has attracted the attention of many Earth scientists. Since the earthquake the Wenchuan Earthquake Fault Scientific Drilling (WFSD) Project has drilled several holes up to 3 km depth. The main purpose of the present array of seismological stations is to investigate the deep structure of the region surrounding the epicentre of the Wenchuan earthquake. While the array was operating the Ms 6.6 Lushan earthquake occurred in April 2013 at the SW edge of the array. Waveform data is available from the GEOFON data centre, under network code 2F, and is embargoed until DEC 2017.
