MAGIC - Seismic Station Volunteer Program
MAGIC - Mid-Atlantic Geophysical Integrative Collaboration
Information for Potential Volunteers
The Mid-Atlantic Geophysical Integrative Collaboration, via WVGES, is in need of sites for seismic monitoring stations within the state. Here is your opportunity to participate
in a scientific endeavor if you have some property in one of the desired locations!
Please note: Persons considering volunteering their property as a site for a MAGIC seismic station to be constructed during the
Summer of 2013 should read this information carefully. It discusses the details of the Project.
The West Virginia Geological
and Economic Survey (WVGES) is assisting in the solicitation of participants, but is in no way liable for any costs or issues
arising from the installation, operation, or removal of individual seismic stations.

MAGIC - Desired Locations for Seismic Stations in WV
If you are considering to volunteer your property as a site for a MAGIC seismic station (for construction during the
Summer of 2013), examine the map shown below. MAGIC Project personnel have selected eight preferred locations within
West Virginia and have furnished the geographic coordinates of each location to WVGES. This map shows each of those locations
surrounded by a circle with a radius of 10 kilometers. Volunteers are being solicited within each of these areas. The
volunteer's property must lie within 10 kilometers (gray) of the center of each area. The selection of individual volunteers to
have a seismic station built on their property is strictly under the control of the MAGIC Project as was the determination of
preferred locations for seismic stations.
Zoom into where you wish to volunteer property to see if you are in one of the locations. Change the map view to terrain or satellite for better reference.
Contact MAGIC if you would like to have a monitoring site!
MAGIC - Contact Information
Persons considering volunteering their property as a site for an MAGIC seismic station and meeting the location
criterion presented on the map shown above are urged to contact
