Abstract:

The power spectral density functions of seismic background noise were analyzed from several depths in the Eniwetok E-1 Well, Parry Island, Eniwetok Atoll, Marshall Islands. The theory of power spectra is discussed together with its application to the study of seismic background noise. Results obtained show that the noise recorded by a vertical-motion seismometer is due to Rayleigh waves, of fundamental and higher modes. Author
