Here comes some text to introduce this topic. this will, again be put in via the "pages" tool
As part of an interdisciplinary research project with geologists, palaeontologists and anthropologists from USA and UK, we installed a dense seismic network in the Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli basins. These sites are located within the Ngorogoro Conservation Area (NCA) and are two paleo-antropological excavation sites of global importance for understanding the evolution of early humans. Our seismic network covers a surface of approximately 30 x 40 km and is operating with ten 120 s Trillium compact sensors since June 2016. Five more instruments were installed in June 2017.
We use broadband seismic data by the Saudi Geological Survey and analyze them with a range of seismological tools to study the Earth’s structure beneath Saudi Arabia. This effort focusses on western Saudi Arabia, characterized by prevalent volcanic activity and a rapid transition from oceanic to continental crust along the margins of the Red Sea. In doing so, we are able to accurately locate earthquakes within the region and to determine source parameters, relevant for seis. hazard assessment.
