Southern California Seismic Network

Field Operations

Due to the very high station density and coverage (over 400 stations) in Southern California, our field technicians are always busy traveling around the state repairing, updating, and installing seismic stations. In order to get the best data possible our sites sometimes need to be in inhospitable, exotic, and/or nearly inaccessible locations throughout the state. Thanks to the continued hard work of the field technicians, our network is able to run smoothly so analysis can be done on the large number of earthquakes that shake Southern California on a daily basis.

Below are some examples of the work that the technicians perform and some of the interesting locations and surroundings that they work with.
