       Station Site Evaluation
          Jack Odum USGS Golden, CO



New or existing?
Station Requirements
Scouting Trips (begin by August-September 2005)
Trip Needs - Visas, hotels, truck, tools, contacts
Webform for Site information - does not exist yet…
                                 Site Evaluation
 All stations will be evaluated on the following criteria:

1. Large utility vehicle (backhoe, concrete truck) accessibility.
2. Return visit accessibility--how easy is it to access the site in different conditions throughout the year.
3. Site conditions such as proximity to bedrock and drainage.
4. Security -
       Locks and fencing required?
       Should the site should be hidden from view of the casual observer?
5. Infrastructure (e.g., enclosure requirements, power).
6. Availability of telecommunications, and satellite view.
7. Availability of reliable AC power.
8. Local contacts and maintenance personnel.
9. Cultural noise characteristics.
10. Daily solar radiation.
11. Hurricane resistance.

              Data Integration at the NEIC


VSAT to NEIC for automatic processing in HYDRA
         HYDRA is a new earthquake processing system based on earthworm


QC analysis system for archiving at IRIS DMC
        Data Flow to Local Institutions


Data Format Options
     earthworm - internal format, offers most connectivity and products
                output in SAC, SEED

     LISS - real-time feed in miniSEED

     autodrm - future support uncertain

     IRIS DMC - BUD offers real-time feed.
