Dear All

We have received another request for membership from the Institute of Physics of the Earth (IPE), Masaryk University, Czech Republic.

CZ Czech Regional Seismic Network: a network of ~22 BB stations in the Czech Republic operated by several institutions. IPE operates 5 of them (MORC, KRUC, VRAC, JAVC and STAC).
M1 Moravia Network (MONET): local network of 9 SP stations for monitoring of seismic activity in the NE Czech Republic.
T1 IPE_ETE Network: local network of 5 SP stations for monitoring of seismic activity around Temelín Nuclear Power Plant.
D1 IPE_EDU Network: local network of 5 SP stations for monitoring of seismic activity around Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant.

Station records of CZ and M1 are all available on-line (both at GEOFON and part of CZ at IRIS).
Station records of T1 and D1 networks are available upon request (see https://www.ipe.muni.cz/en/monitoring/stations/data_metadata).

Thus, they also agree to the requirement for FDSN membership:
"Membership in the FDSN is open to all groups that operate more than one broad-band station. Members agree to coordinate station siting and provide free and open access to their data (normally in SEED format)."

At our last meeting, we decided that, should we receive applications for membership, we could send out an email for voting.

Each member of the FDSN will have one vote. A majority of 2/3 voting members will be required for an affirmative vote. Five members of the FDSN will constitute a quorum.

Please could you send me your votes by no later than 23 November 2020 in order for us to make a decision.

Thank you for you cooperation.
Kind regards
michelle
