2023-2024 USAP Field Season
Global seismograph station at South Pole and Palmer stations
Mr. Kent Anderson
Supporting Stations: Palmer Station, South Pole Station
The United States Geological Survey's Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory (USGS- ASL), in collaboration with the NSF-sponsored Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology consortium's Portable Network's Instrumentation Center (IRIS-PASSCAL), maintains and operates seismometers at South Pole in the South Pole Remote Earth Science and Seismological Observatory (SPRESSO) vault and at Palmer Station in the Terra Lab.
Field Season Overview
No on-site field work is to be performed by the science team this year. The instruments will continue to operate autonomously, year-round, via remote monitoring and control, aided by on-site support provided by ASC staff and other station infrastructure (IT network, station services, etc.) as needed.
