      Description

      The seismic broadband station ABOA has been in operation since 2007. The station is situated at the Finnish Antarctic research station Aboa in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. Data collected from this station are used in cryoseismology and studies of the local seismicity. Cryososeismic research involves quantitative studies of ice processes that are known or are suspected to show sensitivity to climate change. The data are also used for studies of structure of the crust and upper mantle.
