Short description

Seismic activity in Storfjorden (south-west of Svalbard) increased after a magnitude Mw = 6.2 event on 21st of February 2008. The increased level of seismicity persists until present. Continuous monitoring of the seismicity from close range is important to resolve the seismic activity better than is possible with the permanent land based seismic stations. For monitoring at close range, the seismology group of university of Bergen deployed three OBS temporarily in Storfjorden for about one year (August 2019 - June 2020) under INTAROS and EPOS project.
