Full description

A total of 65 recording sites have been occupied across the whole country, at each one we have installed a seismometer with a broad frequency response and a data-logger with 24 bit digital recording onto digital audio tape, as a result we have a high-fidelity recording of the ground motion at the site.
These portable units record for 9 weeks continuously onto a 90 m tape with a total of 2 Gbytes of data per tape. From this full record we extract in Canberra the portions corresponding to the seismic events of interest, and these segments are then used for further analysis.
