Beginning in 1993, a seismological broadband network (named the Cavascope network) was set up in New Caledonia and Vanuatu in the Southwest Pacific, within a collaborative framework of researchers from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, Nouméa, New Caledonia (IRD); Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre, Strasbourg, France (EOST); and the Department of Geology, Mines and Water Resources of Vanuatu (DGMWR). This seismological network, located in a particularly fast converging area, i.e., the New Hebrides subduction zone, and surrounded by numerous other very active seismic zones (Papua New Guinea, Salomon Islands, Fiji, Tonga-Kermadec, and New Zealand)...
