UNAVCO Community Members,

Our sympathies go out to the people of Haiti in the wake of of the  
January 12 Haiti Mw 7.0 earthquake.

On behalf of the science community, UNAVCO is acting on several  
requests to respond to the Haiti earthquake with data acquisition.   
Please find UNAVCO’s Event Response policy at: http://www.unavco.org/community/policies_forms/Event-Response.pdf

Event response capatility is also linked through this page:

Please also remember that UNAVCO's Project Support Request form is  
always an appropriate point of entry if you don't know where else to  
start.  It is linked from our front page and found directly from:

Jim Normandeau  has been designated UNAVCO's Event Response  
Coordinator to handle our response for the Haitian earthquake, a Mw  
7.0 event.  His contact information is found at the end of this  
message.  We try to drive as much communication as possible to the  
forum so that anyone can view the history of communications to date:

The Haiti earthquake forum can be found at: http://www.unavco.org/voce/viewforum.php?f=46

Here is a brief summary of current response activities.

- Campaigns GPS systems:
UNAVCO has campaigns systems readily available along with associated  
ancillary equipment.
Additional campaign that have just been returned  from recent  
projects  are being made ready.
In addition, necessary modifications of the campaign systems are being  
made to prepare them for semi-permanent (1+ years)  deployment should  
the need arise.

Dave Phillips is coordinating the effort to make  a TLS (Terrestrial  
Laser Scanner) system available.

Standard daily (15sec) files from permanent station in the Caribbean  
are available from the UNAVCO Data Archive Interface

High rate GPS data:
UNAVCO is downloading 5 Hz data from the Caribbean Hurricane  
Prediction Network (PI: Dr. John Braun) and these data have been made  
available at:

1Hz data is available at the UNAVCO archive from the Puerto Rico  
Network (PI; Guoquan Wang). 10Hz data is also being downloaded and  
made available.

Data from PBO station P780 is being downloaded too and is available at  
the UNAVCO archive

Borehole strainmeter data from the PBO network are also available.   
Relevant to this earthquake, borehole strainmeter data from PBO are  
found at:

PBO strainmeter data can always be found linked of the program's home  

PBO Borehole seismometer data are archived at IRIS.edu.

SAR data:
There are no SAR data for the earthquake area currently in the WInSAR  
or EarthScope archives. There are plans to assemble data which will be  
made available through the Supersites website at http://supersites.unavco.org/main.php 
. We are in the process of posting the plans on the site.

If you need more specific information that is not forthcoming from the  
forum or the provided links, please contact Jim Normandeau who can  
help you or direct you.  Please also check the forum for updates.
