Sino-French Italian Western Alps Seismic Array Detection Project has finished 55 mobile observation stations laid task since June 2012. The project has obtained continuous observation data of 48 pre-emplaced stations from June to August 2012. The overall data capacity is 120GB, which quality is excellent; and average success rate is more than 90% of the data acquisition.
Sino-French Italian Western Alps Seismic Array Detection Project is funded and led by the State Key Laboratory of Lithospheric Evolution, officially launched in 2011, which is the first step of implementing oversea research of Tethyan Orogenic Evolution. These stations will provide more accurate data for studying the formation of the Alps.
