Overview

In 1993, Kajima Engineering and Construction Corp. and Agbabian Associates established the Borrego Valley Downhole Array (BVDA) near Borrego Springs, in Southern California. The BVDA site consists of borehole and surface instruments that extend east-west 3000m across the Borrego Valley and a remote rock site at the western edge of the valley that includes surface and borehole sensors. The site was installed to provide information about wave propagation across the alluvial basin generated by the Coyote Creek and Clark Faults.
