Abstract: The TIPTIMON seismic deployment in Tajikistan aimed to study the seismotectonics of the western Pamir and Tajik-Afghan basin. Within this network 25 seismic stations were deployed between 2012 to 2014 to study shallow and intermediate depth seismicity. TIPTIMON (Tien Shan-Pamir Monitoring) is a research programme funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the CAME Programme (Central Asia - Monsoon dynamics and Geo-ecosystems). All stations recorded continuously with 100 samples per second and were equipped with EDL (EarthData PR6-24) recorders and broadband seismometers. Waveform data is available from the GEOFON data centre, under network code 5C, and is embargoed until April 2018.

Abstract: From June 2012 to November 2013, the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS) together with the Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ) operated an array of 80 broadband seismic stations in a 300 km by 150 km area straddling the Longmenshan fault zone around the epicentre of the Wenchuan earthquake. Since the occurrence of the Ms 8.0 Wenchuan earthquake which ruptured about 300 km of the Longmenshan fault zone in May 2008, this region has attracted the attention of many Earth scientists. Since the earthquake the Wenchuan Earthquake Fault Scientific Drilling (WFSD) Project has drilled several holes up to 3 km depth. The main purpose of the present array of seismological stations is to investigate the deep structure of the region surrounding the epicentre of the Wenchuan earthquake. While the array was operating the Ms 6.6 Lushan earthquake occurred in April 2013 at the SW edge of the array. Waveform data is available from the GEOFON data centre, under network code 2F, and is embargoed until DEC 2017.

Abstract: The island of Madagascar occupies a key region in both the assembly and the multi-stage breakup of Gondwanaland, itself part of the super-continent Pangaea. Madagascar consists of an amalgamation of continental material, with the oldest rocks being of Archaean age. Its ancient fabric is characterised by several shear zones, some of them running oblique to the N-S trend, in particular in the south of the island. More recently during the Neogene, moderate volcanism has occurred in the Central and Northern part of the island, and there are indications of uplift throughout Eastern Madagascar over the last 10 Ma. Although Madagascar is now located within the interior of the African plate and far away from major plate boundaries (>1000 km from the East African rift system and even further from the Central and South-West Indian Ridges), its seismic activity indicates that some deformation is taking place, and present-day kinematic models based on geodetic data and earthquake moment tensors in the global catalogues identify a diffuse N-S-oriented minor boundary separating two microplates, which appears to pass through Madagascar. In spite of the presence of Archaean and Proterozoic rocks continent-wide scale studies indicate a thin lithosphere (<120 km) throughout Madagascar, but are based on sparse data and cannot resolve the difference between eastern and western Madagascar. We have operated an ENE-WSW oriented linear array of 25 broadband stations in southern Madagascar, extending from coast to coast and sampling the sedimentary basins in the west as well as the metamorphic rocks in the East, cutting geological boundaries seen at the surface at high angle. The array crosses the prominent Bongolava-Ranotsara shear zone which is thought to have been formed during Gondwanaland assembly. The array recorded the magnitude 5.3 earthquake of January 25, 2013 which occurred just off its western edge. In addition, in May 2013 we have deployed 25 short period sensors in the eastern part of the study area, where there is some so-far poorly characterised seismicity. Waveform data is available from the GEOFON data centre, under network code ZE, and is embargoed until DEC 2018.

Abstract: Electrical resistivity methods, either in vertical electrical sounding mode or lateral mapping mode, assess the resistivity distribution in the subsurface. Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) has been successfully applied to image fluid-flow processes at various length scales and depths, mainly with electrodes deployed at the surface.A practical application of the ERT monitoring technique was demonstrated at the geological CO2 storage site in Ketzin (Germany), where time-lapse surface- downhole ERT measurements as well as cross- hole ERT measurements have been carried out during a CO2 injection experiment. In the frame of the multidisciplinary monitoring concept, a combination of surface-downhole(SD) geoelectric measurements was tested (Kiessling et al., 2010) with the objective to enlarge the near-wellbore area, and to address limitations of the individual survey techniques. The geoelectric measurements at the Ketzin site comprise the following survey types: 3D SD-ERT, 2D SD-ERT and Crosshole ERT.The present data publication is focused on the 3D SD- ERT data sets only. Users have the opportunity to assess SD -ERT data in two main steps: The raw field data (voltage and current time -series) and the preprocessed apparent resistivities. The raw field data can be used to apply own preprocessing procedures in order to determine apparent resistivities. Using the pre- processed apparent resistivities, it is possible to start right away into the resistivity inversion.

Abstract: The EMEC earthquake catalogue is an extension in time and space of the CENEC catalogue (Grünthal et al., 2009, http://doi.org/10.1007/s10950-008-9144-9). It consists of some 45,000 entries in Europe and the Mediterranean area and extends to the west to encompass the North Atlantic Ridge. The criteria are Mw ≥ 3.5 for events with latitude ≥ 44°N and Mw ≥ 4.0 for events with latitude < 44°N, in the time period 1000-2006. Data within the catalogue area can be obtained as ASCII-file through the EMEC Earthquake Catalogue Web Service. This webservice also enables the creation of seismicity maps according to user's specifications. In addition, a list of earthquakes in the time period 300-999 for Mw ≥ 6.0 in the catalogue area with latitude ≤ 40°N and longitude ≥ 10°E is given and a list of fake events in the time period 1000-1799.
