Installation Guide and Developed Learnings for Satellite Telemetered Stations in the Regional Alberta Observatory for Earthquake Studies Network (RAVEN)

In the fall of 2013 the Alberta Geological Survey began installing a network of satellite telemetered seismic stations, that compose the Regional Alberta Observatory for Earthquake Studies Network (RAVEN), to better understand and catalogue earthquakes throughout Alberta.

This report documents the installation procedure's three steps:

1) scouting of suitable locations,

2) preparation of infrastructure, and

3) setup of electronics.

Throughout this document, we detail our thought process for each of these steps as a guideline and to document our ongoing learnings and improvements to the station designs.
