The Transportable Array is a set of 400 broadband stations that will, over the 10 year course of the project, traverse the conterminous United States. The DMC receives 40 and 1 samples/second seismic data streams from each site in addition to related state-of-health data in real-time. Since mid-2010, atmospheric sensors have been installed at the TA stations. Information about these sensors is available at usarray.org Atmospheric.

The Reference Network is composed of permanent stations at a roughly 300 km spacing across the United States and includes the 39 EarthScope-funded Permanent Array stations. The DMC receives 40 and 1 samples/second seismic data streams from most sites.

The Flexible Array is a set of broadband and active-source oriented instruments deployed on a temporary basis according to individual proposal (the PASSCAL model). Data rates and availability from Flexible Array deployments depend on the individual proposals. Find this map above & more information on Flexible Array Projects here.

The magnetotelluric (MT) component of USArray consists of 7 permanent MT stations and a mobile array of 20 MT stations that will each be deployed for a period of about one month in regions of identified interest with a spacing of approximately 70 km.
