Shallow Foundation Mast Overview
Shallow Foundation Mast
The shallow foundation mast consists of a 1.25"-diameter threaded stainless steel mast cemented or epoxied into bedrock or cement. The height may vary; shown here is an ~5" long mast cemented about 20" deep into bedrock. This style of mast has been used throughout the EarthScope Rio Grande network in Colorado and New Mexico, and for GGN sites FALK (Faulkland Islands) and ABPO (Madagascar).
Design and Construction
A heavy-duty hammer drill is required for installation.
This cost is for the monumentation only; the antenna mount (e.g. SCIGN mount) is not included.
Mount Commonly Used
A SCIGN mount is required if using a SCIGN radome. If not using a SCIGN radome, a mount such as the SECO 2072-series stainless steel antenna mount is a more economical solution.
