Abstract:

During the second half of 1967 and the early part of 1968, a 7- element long-period seismic array was constructed at the Tonto Forest Seismological Observatory TFSO. Each of the seven elements consists of a vertical long-period seismograph and two mutually-perpendicular horizontal seismographs. The elements are arranged in a hexagonal pattern and are distributed over an area of approximately 800 square miles. This report describes each aspect of the design, installation, and initial operation of the array.
