Abstract
The permanent GL network is composed of stations geographically distributed mainly on La Soufrière volcano edifice and on all the islands of Guadeloupe.
The stations all share the following features:
(1) power: solar panels and battery,
(2) telemetry: radio, wifi, 4G, or Very Small Aperture Terminal, and
(3) sensors: seismometers, tiltmeters and weather sensors.
Some of the stations are multi-sensors.
Most of the time, sensors are separated from the electronics in order to avoid any electric, magnetic and thermal mutual influence.
Seismometers are middle-band Güralp CMG40T, Nanometrics Trillium Compact 120s (regular and posthole versions), or short period L4-1Hz.
Tiltmeters are IPGP "home-made" BLUM tiltmeters (this network was stopped in 2008).
The deformation of the dome are manully measured with extensomters and creep-meters every month.
Rain gauges are "Precis-mecanique" and Vaisala products are used for other weather sensors.
Magnetic stations network was dismantled in 2005.
Two tide gages participate to the Caribbean tsunami warning system, the primary sensor is a radar associated with a meteorological sensor.
All data are disseminated in miniSEED and stationXML FDSN formats. Seismic data of this network are disseminated both in real time (raw data) and after validation.
