Seismic Event Data

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00601

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1969-11-20 to 1978-05-17

Description

This collection consists of seismic events detected in the long-period components (resonant period of 15 sec) by manual search by the experimenter of the compressed-scale playouts (collection PSPG-00290). Copies were then made of the original PSE tapes for the time periods when seismic events (ground movements) were observed.

Each event tape contains data from one station only, but data (traces of ground motion amplitudes vs. time) from the same time periods were copied in chronological order onto separate tapes for each station. Thus, intervals which may contain no detectable signal can be on the event tape because an event was detected at another station. The tapes were written in binary. Several computers were used in processing these data.
