Cheers from the land Down Under!

My first time installing seismometers was in the Northern Territory (AUS), in 2018. Crossing creeks on an ATV jeep as well as carrying the equipment throughout the bush was heaps of fun! We aimed to install 16 stations in a spiral array configuration for diverse purposes.

Seismologist = Digging
Part of being a seismologist includes digging holes on the ground! In this photo you see myself helping to install 72 nodes around Stromlo Forest Park to record a few explosions on site. Certainly, some kangaroo activity will also be detected! Hope those little fellas will behave well until we are back there in a couple of weeks to recover the equipment! Credit: Prof. Hrvoje Tkalčić
