Abstract:

During the first year of the subject contract, the purpose of the research program was twofold 1 To maintain the previously installed high- gain seismograph stations at the following five stations Charters Towers, Australia CTA Fairbanks, Alaska FBK Eilat, Israel EIL Chiang Mai, Thailand CHG and Ogdensburg, New Jersey OGD, and to install and maintain a sixth high-gain station at Toledo, Spain TLO. 2 To conduct research on the long-period analog and digital data from the above six stations and from the two additional stations installed at Albuquerque, New Mexico ALQ and Kongsberg, Norway KON, by personnel from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA. The most significant finding of the analysis of data pertinent to the earthquake-explosion discrimination problem is one based on results from the seismic detection, discrimination, earth noise, and digital filtering studies.
