Network name Erebus Backbone Network (EBN) Deployment region
Start year 2019 End year 2024
Short description

The IRIS/PASSCAL Polar program has been tasked with the design, fabrication, & deployment of a near-real time backbone seismic network near the summit of Mount Erebus. This infrastructure will support the scientific and hazard monitoring objectives of the NSF and supplant the temporary Erebus Interim project. The IRIS Program for Array Seismic Studies of the Continental Lithosphere (PASSCAL) Instrument Center at New Mexico Tech supports cutting?edge seismological research into Earth’s fundamental geological structure and processes and will use this expertise to install and maintain this network. The scope of this project does not include a directive for ongoing monitoring of the resulting data. This network will be comprised of five stations that include broadband, strong motion, and infrasound sensing capabilities.
