Vibroseis Shaker Truck

T-Rex vibroseis truck from NEES@UTAustin at WLA site.

The NEES@UCSB facilities can be used for both active experiments and also data reuse from the daily earthquakes that shake the sites. These facilities and the data being generated provide researchers opportunities for developing tools for site characterization, exploring new sensor technologies, and for the evaluation of soil properties including how they change with time during and after seismic shaking. The two sites are linked by next-generation wireless communications to the NEEShub cyberinfrastructure enabling teleparticipation in active experiments as well as on-site workshops and virtual facility tours.
