During the period spanning October 10th through November 2nd, five BSM installations were completed by a single fully staffed installation team. These installations included down-hole instrumentation, up-hole electronics, and communications systems installed with data flowing to the EarthScope archive. Sites installed include, B073 Varian 1, B075 Flengte Flats, B076 Donna Lee, B078 Gold Hill and B079 Jack Canyon. These installations complete the first phase of installations in Parkfield. The Varian 2 hole was abandoned due to unsuitable geology. Drilling of the boreholes began in September 2006. These installations represent a significant milestone in achieving a sustainable installation rate of three sites per month, including logistics, with a single installation team.
