Field-work report: 31 August - 1 September 2023

During the period of August 31st to September 1st, 2023, the members of the DuFAULT project research team, Josip Stipčević and Marin Sečanj, carried out a regular survey and maintenance of the temporary seismic stations of the Du-Net local seismic network in the wider area of Dubrovnik, which were installed within the HRZZ project DuFAULT. Four temporary seismological stations were visited:

  • DF01 – Ljubinje (BA)
  • DF02 – Bileća (BA)
  • DF03 – Nevesinje (BA)
  • DF06 – Maranovići (Island of Mljet)

During the survey, all installations and equipment at the mentioned temporary seismic stations were checked and a backup of the recorded data from the communication units was created. Additionally, at the DF06 station (Maranovići, Island of Mljet), communication issues between the station and the main server located in Zagreb were resolved. Station DF03 (Nevesinje, BA) has been completely dismantled and has been listed as inactive since August 9, 2023 (due to a malfunction in the instrument which cannot be repaired).

Regular maintenance and repairs enable uninterrupted data transmission from temporary seismological stations to the main server in Zagreb at the Andrija Mohorovičić Geophysical Institute at the Department of Geophysics of the Faculty of Science (UniZg). The continuous communication and transmission of the data from the stations very important for ensuring quality control of the recorded data and for quick data analysis, such as earthquake locating.
