About this book


This Work offers a unique coverage of modern seismic instrumentation. It provides not only detailed information on the basic understanding of seismic instruments but it also includes an overview of current equipment on the market.

Furthermore, the following topics are included:

installing seismic stations, networks and arrays

working with portable instruments

calibrating instruments

dealing with response information

and teaching about seismic instruments

This book is primarily intended for seismologists and technicians working with seismological instruments. The aim is that it should be used as a practical tool with only the amount of theory needed to understand the basic principles and the answers to most practical problems should be found here.

This book is written in such a way that it is understandable for a broad range of professionals working with seismological instruments and seismic data, whether students, engineers or seismologists. Both practical and theoretical topics are covered with the main emphasis on practical aspects. The book is based on the authors (seismologist and physicist) experience working in this field for more than 25 years.
