  • Content Description: Earthquake monitoring of the Roosevelt-Cove Fort Hot Springs KGRA's was implemented by installation of three RF telemetered, vertical component, seismograph stations: CFU, MNU and RHU. These station sites were selected on the basis of proximity to the KGRA's, with respect to known earthquake activity determined in the microearthquake surveys. The three permanent stations form the basic long-term monitoring capability of the Roosevelt-Cove Fort KGRA's. The signals are FM transmitted to a collecting site near Milford then they are telephone-transmitted to the University of Utah campus for recording. The limitations of only three-stations precludes accurate hypocenter determinations but allows detection to a minimum threshold of about M-0.5 for close-in events. Locations can be determined for earthquakes of about M-0.7 or greater. Regional coverage of the south-central Utah KGRA's is supplemented by the use of other existing University of Utah stations to the east: MSU, PUU, and RFU. Together the six stations allow long-term detection of this geothermally active region.
