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, with John Collins serving as Director. The OBSIC replaces the Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool. This OBSIP website is no longer updated and will be removed in July 2019.
Note: The black and white symbols show past OBSIP deployments with data currently available at the IRIS DMC. Clicking on a station will show a link to additional information about the experiment and station through the IRIS DMC MetaData Aggregator. Red markers show future deployments of OBSIP instruments and blue show current deployments.
