DEEP-TEE Phase 1
A seismological experiment was started in July 2014 in and around the East Eifel Volcanic Field, Germany. Following two unusually deep micro-earthquakes in September 2013 (about 40 km depth) a seismic network was installed to record more local seismic events in order to better understand the seismicity and dynamics of this region. Ten recording stations of the GFZ GIPP (Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam at Helmholtz Centre Potsdam, GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences) and three recording stations of the KIT KABBA (Karlsruhe BroadBand Array at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) were placed between the permanent stations of the state earthquake survey (Landeserdbebendienst). Altogether about 18-20 short-period and broadband stations could be used to study the seismicity up to August 2016. This dataset is unique concerning the station density in this region and allows determination of hypocenter parameters with high precision and accuracy, estimation of the local crustal and upper mantle structure as well as using array techniques for wavelengths of about 10-50 km. After August 2016 the network was reconfigured and continuously updated by KIT-GPI and LGB.
