Most MASE seismometers are located near schools

MASE array - This is a cooperative project involving Caltech's Tectonics Observatory, UCLA's CENS, Geophysical Institute at UNAM and the Center for Geosciences at UNAM. The seismic component consisted of 100 broadband seismometers across central Mexico. Flat subduction is observed for the first 250 km from the trench. The array ran from 2005-2007 (Data)

VEOX array This experiment is a follow on to the MASE experiment and crosses southern Mexico just north of the Techauntepec Ridge. The slab is dipping at 20° in this region. (Data)
