Installation of the KNKL GPS station in Mayotte, as part of the Tellus project


Description : This photograph was taken at the KNKL seismological station, located in the municipality of Kani-Keli, Mayotte. The site was instrumented as part of the CNRS-Insu Tellus project, following the seismo-volcanic crisis that began in May 2018. This site hosts three types of instruments: an accelerometer, a wideband seismometer and a GPS antenna from Résif's GPSmob mobile fleet that can be seen on this picture. This observation site is part of the French seismological and geodetic network Résif, a national research infrastructure dedicated to the observation and understanding of the structure and dynamics of the Internal Earth. Résif is based on high-tech observation networks, composed of seismological, geodetic and gravimetric instruments deployed in a dense manner throughout France. The data collected make it possible to study with high spatial and temporal resolution the deformation of the ground, surface and deep structures, seismicity on a local and global scale and natural hazards, and more particularly seismic events, on French territory. Résif is part of the European (EPOS - European platform observing system) and global systems of instruments used to image the Earth's interior as a whole and to study many natural phenomena.
