Project Highlights 2003 - BARGEN Network Densification

BARGEN Network Densification 2003

  • Principal Investigator (PI): Dr. Brian Werincke, CALTECH
  • UNAVCO Engineers: Steven Borenstein, Warren Gallaher
  • Dates: 28 January 2003 - 6 February 2003
  • Location: United States Basin and Range; Scipio, UT, Austin, NV and Battle Mountain, NV.

The Basin and Range Geodedic Network (BARGEN) is a collaborative project between the California Institute of Technology Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. This project included the installation of three additional sites to the existing 50 site BARGEN network. The sites - SPIC, located in Scipio, UT, TOIY, located in the Toiyabe Range in Austin, NV and BAMO, located at Battle Mountain, NV - used deep drill braced monument installed by EarthSafe. All initial purchase, design and configuration of solar, gps and telemetry systems was done at the UNAVCO Facility in Boulder before deployment to the field. UNAVCO engineers were responsible for the in field installation as well as final testing before handing over data processing responsiblities to Harvard Smithsonian. Both SPIC and TOIY have Ashtech MicroZ receivers and telemetry is routed to a phone relay. BAMO is using a Trimble 4000 which is downloaded through the University of Nevada, Reno, microwave system at Mount Lewis.
