The Crust and lithosphere Investigation of the Easternmost expression of the Laramide Orogeny was a two‐year deployment of 24 broadband, compact posthole seismometers in a linear array across the eastern half of the Wyoming craton. The experiment was designed to image the crust and upper mantle of the region to better understand the evolution of the cratonic lithosphere. In this article, we describe the motivation and objectives of the experiment; summarize the station design and installation; provide a detailed accounting of data completeness and quality, including issues related to sensor orientation and ambient noise; and show examples of collected waveform data from a local earthquake, a local mine blast, and a teleseismic event. We observe a range of seasonal variations in the long‐period noise on the horizontal components (15–20 dB) at some stations that likely reflect the range of soil types across the experiment. In addition, coal mining in the Powder River basin creates high levels of short‐period noise at some stations. Preliminary results from Ps receiver function analysis, shear‐wave splitting analysis, and averaged P‐wave delay times are also included in this report, as is a brief description of education and outreach activities completed during the experiment.
