The Dry Valley seismic project monitors regional and global seismicity. The Dry Valleys' stations near Antarctica’s McMurdo Station are part of the Air Force Technical Applications Center’s (AFTAC) southern network, which accumulates near-real-time data from nine locations in the Southern Hemisphere. The data are transmitted to the National Data Center in Florida and made available to the international scientific community.
