This project includes the operation, evaluation, and improvement of the Wichita Mountains Seismological Observatory WMSO located on the Fort Sill Military Reservation in southern Oklahoma. The purpose of WMSO is threefold. First, the standard instrumentation of the observatory is maintained and continually evaluated and seismometric data are recorded, analyzed, and reported to the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey USC and GS daily. Second, WMSO is used as a field laboratory where new instruments and techniques are tested and evaluated to determine their value for use at an observatory. Third, the data recorded at WMSO are studied, separately and in conjunction with data from other observatories, in an effort to improve and refine interpretive techniques and to learn more about earthquake mechanisms and the mechanisms of propagation of seismic waves through the earth.
