Description: Notice of Intent to award a cooperative agreement to the University of Washington pursuant to the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) in support of the project entitled "Pacific Northwest Seismic Network Operations – EHP". The main objectives of the agreement in support of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) are: . operation and maintenance seismic stations and associated station metadata that meet ANSS standards, ensuring delivery of station waveform data and accurate station metadata to other ANSS networks and ANSS designated archives, adhering to the implementation of ANSS approved software standards to ensure efficient flow of data and information for robust delivery of ANSS products and services and interoperability, producing authoritative catalogs of earthquake source parameters and other ANSS products and services that meet ANSS standards, contributing to the operation and development of the Station Information System (SIS), working with ANSS and the ANSS National Implementation Committee (NIC) toward using or populating SIS for station inventory control and description and maintenance of station metadata and coordinating seismic monitoring activities with ANSS management and ANSS participants. The University of Washington is uniquely qualified to carry out the work described above as they are the co-operators (with University of Oregon) of the PNSN, a USGS-supported seismic network in the Pacific Nothwest, which is a region of significant seismic hazard posed by the offshore Cascadiasubduction zone. University of Washington also has a well-developed network staff that is also of great benefit to this proposed study. The PIs have been extensively involved with this effort as the seismic network operator. In addition, specialized equipment is needed for monitoring and has been deployed by the University of Washington in the regions of monitoring. Some of the field sensors and central recording and computing equipment is university-owned and would not be available to another source. Furthermore, data from the instruments is transmitted to the universities’ facilities and relocation of the data receiving point and telemetry equipment would be costly and time-consuming.
