Locations of seismic monitoring equipment

A map of the seismic monitoring locations.

This is a map of the Ithaca area. It shows the location of Cayuga Lake and the main roads in the area. The Cornell University Borehole Observatory (CUBO) site is marked near Palm Road. Radius lines are shown at ½ mile and ¼ mile from around the location of the Cornell University Borehole Observatory (CUBO). Dryden Road (Rte. 366) and Palm Road, both near the borehole location are also noted.

Sixteen seismometers are identified in the following general areas: Four seismic monitors are located on Cornell’s campus; four in the Town of Ithaca; three in Lansing; one nearby each of the following areas: Town of Dryden, Enfield, East Ithaca, Freeville, and the Paleontological Research Institution. The seismometer type is noted with eight surface seismometers, seven borehole seismometers and one seismometer located near the Paleontological Research Institution.
