Abstract : The German Experimental Seismic System (GERESS) is operated by Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. It is an extension of the Scandinavian regional array network, i.e. NORESS. ARCESS, and FINESA, into Central Europe. This report summarizes research activities carried out at the data centre in the Institute of Geophysics in Bochum during the first semiannual period (June - November 1993) of the current grant. GERESS data are continuously transmitted from the array hub in Bavaria to Bochum and analyzed by an on line processing system, based on RONAPP, to locate seismic events in near real time. In 1993, Ruhr University continued the on site maintenance of the array as part of the research grant. As described in detail in the status report (M. Jost), the monthly uptime of the array varied during the reporting period between 99.3 % and 88.6 % with an average of 97.4 %. Two major research projects were finished and separated papers are included in this report. The first report (J. Schweitzer) explores specific path effects for regional waves in Central Europe. Data from the Group of Scientific Experts' Second Technical Test (GSETT-2) clearly show the influence of an ancient border line between the East European Platform and the West European Orogen which is known as the Teisseyre-Tornquist zone (TTZ).
