The site is located near the historic tower of the Hunebourg castle in the commune of Dossenheim-sur-Zinsel. A seismic sensor (Trillium Compact 120) was installed in a hole dug in the sandstone rocky outcrop at a depth of 50 centimetres. An accelerometric sensor (Trillium Titan) was also installed there. The station is used for the daily detection of earthquakes in metropolitan France, but also for local seismicity, particularly in the detection of earthquakes induced by the deep geothermal activity present in northern Alsace. This station, installed by the North-Eastern France Seismological Observatory (Obsnef), is integrated into the Permanent Broadband Network (RLBP) of the national research infrastructure Résif. Résif is dedicated to the observation and understanding of the internal Earth structure and dynamics. Résif is based on high technology observation networks, composed of seismological, geodetic and gravimetric instruments deployed densely throughout France. The data collected enable the study with high spatio-temporal resolution of ground deformation, surface and deep structures, local and global seismicity and natural hazards, particularly seismic, on French territory. Résif is integrated into the European (EPOS - European Plate Observing System) and worldwide systems of instruments used to image the Earth's interior as a whole and to study numerous natural phenomena.
