The Creepmeter Site CHO1 is equipped with two instruments to monitor assumed strike slip displacement indicated by dextrally offset streams in the long term geological record. The two sensors are both mounted on the same concrete foundation in the hanging wall. The fault strikes 137° and dips 80° towards NE and has an additional normal component of slip. A Guralp broadband seismometer has been installed at the same location in 2010 to investigate the correlation between creepmeter signals and seismometer records. The instrument is equipped with an Inmarsat BGAN satellite connection.
