Caribbean Andesite Lava Island Precision Seismo-geodetic Observatory

CALIPSO is a multinational, collaborative research project primarily funded by the US NSF with additional funding from the UK NERC. Additional funding to support CALIPSO has been provided by NASA. Prof B. Voight (Emeritus, Penn State) is the CALIPSO Chief Scientist and Prof. G.S. Mattioli (UT Arlington) is the CALIPSO Facility Director. Data from the CALIPSO Facility are archived at the UNAVCO, Inc. Facility and the IRIS DMC.

SEA-CALIPSO, a follow-on project to CALIPSO, was an active source seismic experiment completed in December 2007. It was funded by NSF and NERC, with instrument and technical support from IRIS PASSCAL Instrument Center.
