Subject: 40m Noise Budget - Seismic Contribution 

 I'm working on developing a full noise budget for the 40m. To that end, I'll use measurements from the GUR1 seismometer to characterize seismic noise. Without any unit calibration, I found the following spectrum,


To extract useful information from this data, I first used the calibration from "/users/Templates/Seismic-Spectra_121213.xml" to obtain the spectrum in [m / s / sqrt(Hz)].

calibrated_data = raw_data * 3.8e-09

I then divided each point in the power spectrum by the frequency of said point to obtain [m / sqrt(Hz)]. I don't think we can simply divide the whole spectrum by 40 meters to obtain [RIN / sqrt(Hz)], although that was my immediate intuition. Having power spectra of all the major noise contributions in units of [RIN / sqrt(Hz)] would make designing an appropriate filtering servo fairly straightforward.
