ML 4.8 less than 30km from Ribou dam - June 26th, 2019

The ML 4.8 earthquake that hit western France last week was recorded by our system installed on the Ribou dam, thanks to the environmental department of the city of Cholet. It is a relatively small dam (21m high), built in 1958.
The recording system is composed of a D6BB-MOB digitizer, a DW-S 5s seismometer and a GPS-GSM-MOB 3G modem for real time data transfer. It is powered by a 100W solar panel and a 45Ah battery. It is running since february 2018 as a part of our SHM project.
The earthquake is located less than 30km from the station. Here is the helicorder plot for 2019/06/21, with the main shock at 06:50 and two aftershocks (06:58, not reported and 22:56 ML 2.5).

And here is the signal on the three components (sensor points 25 degrees west of the north, in the radial direction of the dam).

The dam survived, no damage was detected neither by our system, nor during the detailed visual inspection that was performed immediately after the event.

GPS WNRO and Garmin GPS-16x receivers - April 16th, 2019

Although Garmin announced on its website that GPS-16x receivers correctly handle the GPS week number rollover (WNRO), some GPS-16x receivers stopped working correctly on April 6th 2019. With those deffective receivers, the digitizers announce a correct number of satellites but the recording does not start. The message displayed is "Waiting for first synchronization". The 'R' command on the TCP port 2947 displays RMC messages ending in a date in 1999 (19.7 years in the past):
The date announced by the receiver is exactly 1024 weeks in the past, the digitizer refuses the initial time setting.
There are two possibilities to make the system operational:

  • update the firmware of the GPS (contact STANEO if you wish that we do this for you or if you want to order a PC-adapter)
  • update the digitizer with version 20190415, the only change is the detection of this anomaly and its correction.

The GPS-GSM-MOB, GPS-SIGFOX-MOB and GPS-LORA-MOB modules should not be affected by this problem.

The firmware can be installed automatically from the web interface of the digitizers or can be obtained following this link .

Firmware update - April 8th, 2019

2016/08/30 Underground antenna to improve rotational seismology - Joint experiment with CEA, iXBlue and STANEO at LSBB

The underground broadband seismic antenna operating in the LSBB in Rustrel runs with 10 more broad band stations for a few months. The antenna is now composed of 5+10 undeground stations and 6 surface stations. The aim of the operation is the comparison of the direct observation of the rotational wavefield measured with a BlueSeis sensor with the rotational component obtained by spatial differentiation of the wavefield recorded by the translational seismic instruments. STANEO already provides the time synchronization and power management system of the antenna, including the protection against thunders (very common in this region during spring and summer).

The new stations are based on D6BB-DIN and D6BB-MOB. Although the undeground laboratory is equipped with optical fibers, is was not possible to deploy fiber for each station. The time synchronization (down to a few microseconds) is based on a the main GPS receiver connected through G-DIN devices. The long cables that could drive destructive overvoltage due to indirect lightnings are isolated thanks to T-DIN devices.

The D6BB and D9 dataloggers are now able to acquire the data flow provided by the BlueSeis sensor. The SEEDLink streams for the rotational components and health states of the sensor are processed as any other standard SEEDLink stream from the digitizer, allowing a really easy access to the data through the standard data management system of the laboratory.

SEEDLink hub: SLHUB and SLHUB-DIN - february 1st 2016

SLHUB is a SEEDLink hub that is simple, full-featured, fast, with a very small memory footprint. As an example, 1400 channels representing 200kB/s request less than 15MB of memory. SLHUB only needs a linux system (x86 64/32bits, ARM...) and 8GB of storage for the SEEDLink buffer. SLHUB can be installed on a standard PC as well as on a very lightweight system such as a NAS (small CPU, limited RAM and huge storage for long term data archiving).
