Abstract:

The Large Aperture Seismic Array is an experimental system designed to provide improved capability for seismic discrimination of nuclear explosions and earthquakes. This improvement is to be brought about by suppression of reverberation and microseismic noise relative to the signal through the use of a larger number of sensors and a larger array aperture than previously employed in seismic arrays for this purpose. This report gives a brief sketch of the way in which the signal improvement is to be achieved, followed by a short physical description of the various parts of the entire array design as it is currently envisioned, including the choice of sensors, array geometry, signal telemetry, and signal processing.
