While making our data collection run, we are rewarded with sneak peeks of the data we so diligently work to gather. A significant event occurred mid-way through our time in Timor Leste that occurred ~1200 km north of our array.
We visited four stations after this event happened, giving us seismologists a dose of instant gratification! Well deserved, according to my sweaty, sunburned opinion.
