No less than 8 different geophysical and geological investigation techniques are being used in the iMUSH project.  These include several different seismic techniques, some using a common set of passive long-term seismographs (earthquake imaging, receiver functions, ambient noise tomography, deep long-period earthquakes) and a very large deployment of short-term seismographs for an active source experiment.  An extensive set of magnetotelluric stations (some co-located with the passive seismographs) will image the electrical structure of the region.  Petrologic investgations of plutonic inclusions will be used in the integration of these different datasets.


Approximate locations for the passive seismic stations and the active source seismic lines. The exact sites have yet to be chosen and permitted.
