Fairfield ZLand 3C Nodes

Geophysical mobile instruments enable the collection of data for specific purposes in places where there are no permanent stations, or with the aim of densifying existing permanent networks. Our pool of seismic instruments is employed in experiments of limited duration, from a few days to a few years.


Our pool of instruments includes:

100 cabel-free 3-component geophones (Fairfield ZLand 3C 5Hz)

30 Broadband 3-component sensors (REFTEK 151-60s)

12 Short period 1-component (Lennartz LE-1DV)

20 REFTEK digitizers 3 channels (130-01/130S)

11 REFTEK digitizers 6 channels (130-01/130S)

Temporary Deployments

30 seismological stations are deployed in eastern Austria and western Slovakia. They are part of the temporary seismic installations of the European research project AlpArray.
