Map of the WACRATON seismic array

The WACRATON array was designed to explore the changes in the crustal structure of Western Australian cratons. The deployment of broadband instruments in 2000 - 2001 provides an improved coverage of the western part of the continent, where few geophysical investigations are carried out. Surface wave paths were used to compensate for equipment problems encountered in the later stages of the SKIPPY project. Instruments included Guralp 40T and 3ESP sensors, a STS2 sensor, and Orion and Reftek digitisers. Data was sampled at 25 samples/sec.
