Coverage and Backbone Stations

  • Improve coverage (Africa, South America, etc…)

  • Use the support of the newly defined Regional Coordinators to urge potential members to volunteer their stations to the FDSN backbone

  • Improve OBS coverage by integrating existing and future stations in the oceans. This involves involvement of groups deploying OBS’s.
