The Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool (OBSIP)
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced that the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) will operate a new center to provide seafloor seismographs and technical support to the U.S. academic community beginning in August 1, 2018. The new Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Center (OBSIC) will be housed at WHOI under a 5-year cooperative agreement. The OBSIC replaces the Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool. This OBSIP website is no longer updated and will be removed in July 2019.
The 2017 OBS Symposium gathered around 120 attendees for a two-day program to highlight the research made possible by current OBS technology and to discuss what lies ahead. Presentations are now available on the symposium website.
