Abstract : The Office of Naval Research, under an Accelerated Research Initiative in ULF/VLF noise, supported the construction of a fleet of 31 Ocean Bottom Seismographs of new design. These instruments utilize an external sensor so that mechanical noise generated by the internal recording device and by water flow will be separated from the sensing package. The external sensor also allows the contact area of the sensor package to be easily modified to optimize coupling of the sensor with the sea floor. This grant supported seafloor tests of coupling and noise transfer characteristics in Buzzards Bay, MA. Specifically, it supported engineering manpower, travel and shipping of equipment from San Diego, CA to and from the experiment site. Analysis of the data was supported under another grant.... Ocean bottom seismographs.
