Apply to Participate in the ENAM Community Seismic Experiment Onshore active-source component

We are looking for participants for the onshore, active-source component of the GeoPRISMS Eastern North America Community Seismic Experiment (ENAM CSE). The ENAM CSE is a community effort to collect open-access active and passive source seismic data along the mid-Atlantic coast. Information about the ENAM CSE can be found at

The onshore, active-source component of the ENAM CSE involves shooting two, ~200-km-long refraction lines from the piedmont to the coast in North Carolina. Along each of these lines, there will be 7 explosive shots recorded by ~700 seismographs.

This experiment provides an opportunity for 10 applicants to participate in the deployment of the seismic stations along these lines and to gain familiarity with various aspects explosive-source seismology. Through this opportunity, we hope to expand the pool of scientists familiar with geophysical data-collection techniques, and so no previous experience with this type of data collection is necessary. Applications from students and early career scientists are particularly encouraged.

The experiment is scheduled for June 1 through June 22, 2015. Travel expenses and a modest per diem will be provided for successful applicants.

If you are interested in participating, please send a CV and a letter of interest to:
