USArray Update

The USRA machine is up and running and collecting data. We are currently receiving data from 60 stations: 2 Transportable Array (TA) stations and stations from the CI, BK, and AZ regional networks, as well as USArray backbone stations (US and IU networks.) The data are being archived by the standard DMC real-time data archiving system (BATS). Virtual Networks (see article in this newsletter) have been defined for the USArray components (_US-TA), providing data query access and monitoring.
