Abstract : Objectives are twofold: (1) to conduct research in seismic mini-array technology and use of data from single stations and sparse networks (CLIN 1), and (2) to design, evaluate, and construct two mini-arrays, TEXESS in Southwest Texas and LUXESS, northeast of Luxor, Egypt (CLIN 2) along the lines of a GSE Alpha Station. With de-installation on hold till diplomatic agreements are in place between the U. S. and Egypt for the installation of LUXESS, work has been directed to CLIN 1 research: love wave radiation from Central Texas quarry blasts, and the use of acoustic and seismo-acoustic data to identify vented explosive seismic sources.
