New seismograph station in Maine


  • Anonymous


A new seismograph station has been established by Boston College's Weston Observatory in Allagash, Maine, to assist the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in evaluating seismic risk in the area of the proposed Dickey-Lincoln dam and reservoir.

The station, eighth in the New England system operated by Boston College, was established in late November and has already recorded four small tremors in the area of the St. Lawrence River valley. Funding for the station was completely provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
