Europe 1983-1987


NARS was initiated by Nolet (Nolet & Vlaar, 1982) to investigate the European upper mantle structure using higher mode surface waves. Thus, the NARS-Europe configuration was set up as a antenna from Southern Sweden to South Spain directed towards the NW Pacific seismic belt. The 14 stations of NARS-Europe which were operative from 1983 till 1988 have provided a wealth of broadband data that since then have been employed for a large number and a great variety of seismological studies. Some stations were moved during the course of the project which yields the 18 different locations shown below.
