Title: Palo Duro seismographic network operation report for July to December 1986: Topical report No. 6

Abstract

A seismographic network operates in the Texas Panhandle to monitor earthquake activity in the area. This report describes the network and its operation, as well as analysis of data obtained during the period of July 1 to December 31, 1986. The network continued to operate satisfactorily during this period. Several local and regional earthquakes were detected and located during this period. These earthquakes occurred in the northern half of the Texas Panhandle and were small (magnitude less than or equal to3.0). None of the earthquakes was felt. Mansfield Station continued to detect a number of very small earthquakes occurring near the station, but it was not possible to locate them since no other station detected them. All elements of the seismographic network were tested and checked in September 1986 and January 1987, as part of the Stone and Webster Engineering Corporation (SWEC) quarterly maintenance program. Monitoring at Buffalo Lake Wildlife Refuge and Muleshoe Wildlife Refuge Stations was terminated on July 15 and November 1, 1986, respectively, because the permits for operating these stations were not renewed. The seismographic network now consists of 14 seismic stations, 4 relay stations, and 1 Central Recording Station. 4 refs., 8 figs., 9 tabs.
