Abstract:

The project is aiming at a siting survey for an advanced seismic array in the Federal Republic of Germany which could be used in a multi-array network jointly with arrays in Scandinavia to detect and identify seismic events especially at regional distances. In order to assess the eventual capabilities of a new high-frequency array in the FRG, it was necessary to conduct a noise survey and to evaluate signal characteristics, both in the high-frequency band up to 50 Hz. It was found that the Bavarian Forest BF in the southeastern part of the FRG at the border to Austria and Czechoslovakia is principally suited for such an array installation.
