Place: Basin & Range area near Pleasant Valley, Nevada.

John Nabelek’s crew in April, working in the Basin & Range area in Northern Nevada near Pleasant Valley. The experiment utilized passive seismic recordings to examine the nature and shape of the Pleasant Valley fault at depth. This was a proof-of-concept experiment, using 35 seismometers in a closely-spaced linear array to image the fault with seismic waves recorded from distant earthquakes. The experiment collected data for 18 months and spanned three valleys in the Basin and Range.
