As the number of global seismic stations continues to grow, measuring station performance is of increasing importance for quality control purposes and to provide input into the siting of new stations or the relocation of existing stations. However, the value of a seismic station depends upon many different factors: the quality and quantity of the data that it provides, the location of the site, and the research goals of individual scientists. Although most seismologists would agree that some stations are more valuable than others, they might disagree when evaluating the worth of specific stations. For example, scientists pursuing mantle tomography...
