EarthScope - Information for Potential Volunteers
Persons considering volunteering their property as a site for an EarthScope seismic station to be constructed during the Summer of 2012 should read this information carefully. It discusses the details of construction necessary for the site and makes it clear that the EarthScope Program handles all costs and liability associated with 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.
EarthScope - Desired Locations for Seismic Stations in WV
Persons considering volunteering their property as a site for an EarthScope seismic station to be constructed during the Summer of 2012 should examine the map shown below. EarthScope Project personnel have selected thirteen 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 miles. Volunteers are being solicited within each of these thirteen areas. Ideally, the volunteer's property will lie within 10 miles of the center of each area. For convenience, each area has been named for the largest nearby community. The selection of individual volunteers to have a seismic station built on their property is strictly under the control of the EarthScope Project as was the determination of preferred locations for seismic stations.
A MOUSECLICK WITHIN THE CIRCLES WILL BRING UP A DETAILED MAP OF THE AREA
