Abstract : An analysis of microseism ground motion at Palisades and Weston is made on the basis of both statistical and individual wave studies. Data from three-component seismographs are utilized for the study of six mioroseism storms. The results of both methods of ground motion analysis show that the microseisms studied for Palisades and Weston are either pure Rayleigh waves or combinations of Rayleigh waves approaching from different directions. The study also tends to support earlier findings that a relationship seems to exist between certain micoroseism parameters and local geology.
