K.U.M. and the SEA-SEIS Ocean-bottom Seismometer Deployment Mission

Scientists from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) have undertaken a 21-day marine science mission, deploying 18 ocean-bottom seismometers (OBSs) at a series of locations on the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean. The OBSs function as sensors are to record the tiny vibrations of the Earth caused by seismic waves, generated by earthquakes and ocean waves, and will record these vibrations for the next 18 months. The intended outcome of this mission is to collect data that will enable the DIAS scientists to better understand the activity under and on the ocean floor along Ireland’s west coast, contributing to tsunami and earthquake detection.
