Network Code: AlpArray Temporary Stations use network code Z3. Exception: Additional Experiments, such as the EASI Swath, with network code XT.
Channel Naming Convention: if sensor orientation is known or suspected to be more than 5degrees from N/E, instead of HH[ZNE] use HH[Z23]
Sampling Rates: AlpArray Z3 stations should be sampled at a minimum of 100sps. Higher sampling rates are allowed. Networks can decide whether to also offer downsampled data streams, eg BH? @ 20/40/50sps, LH? @ 1sps.
Technical strategy: AlpArray technical strategy
Station naming convention: AASN Station naming
Station Description / Site Name convention: AlpArray Z3 stations should follow the station desciption naming strategy where possible: <nearby town / feature>, region, country. Examples: A062A - Arbedo Castione, Alpe di Gesero, TI, Switzerland; A015A - Langauhaeuser, Niederoesterreich, Austria
- network start date should be 01-07-2015 00:00:00
- station:affiliation field should reflect the team that collect the data (e.g. Swiss Seismological Service, Italian Seismic Network, KRSZO, GFZ, jowa)
Information for each EIDA node that participates in AlpArray as a data repository:
1- ensure any Z3 metadata included in your inventory is restricted.
2- pass to SED an inventory dump for the Z3 stations they are responsible for. SED team add the metadata to EIDA as we are responsible for the Z3 network.
3- each EIDA node must pass inventoryXML to SED for each new set of stations, and for each station with subsequent epoch changes (entire station, not just update). Note Public IDs should not change for any updated station metadata. Contact SED directly if this cannot be followed.
