Greenland Glacier Seismology

Case studies

Geobit, October 2018

1. Introduction

GEObit (March 2018) supplied the University of Idaho with four C100/SRi32L[1] units. These units were installed in Greenland from May 2018 to October 2018 by Timothy Bartholomaus[2][3].

2. Installations

The equipment installation was performed by Timothy Bartholomaus, who kindly provided the pictures. The sensors were placed into the ice and the battery, the datalogger and the charge controller into a peli case. A small solar panel was the power source for the instruments. Due to the low power consumption of the system, a small solar panel sitting over the peli case was enough to provide power to the system.
