  176   Mon Jan 24 15:50:38 2011 JanComputingSeismometryMulti-frequency and sphericalI had to rebuild some of the guts of my
simulation to prepare it for the big changes
that are to come later this week. So I only

ran simulations of wavelets. These are not
anymore characterized by a specific frequency,

our filter discussion yesterday. There seem
to be two different approaches, but the subject

of a real detector. The first step to make
it a little more realistic is to simulate
  180   Fri Jan 28 11:22:34 2011 JanComputingSeismometryrealistic noise model -> many problemsSo far, the test mass noise was white noise
such that SNR = NN/noise was about 10. Now
the simulation generates more realistic TM

  182   Fri Jan 28 15:28:52 2011 JanComputingSeismometryHaha, success!Instead of estimating in the frequency
domain, I now have a filter that is defined
in frequency domain, but transformed

instead of noise templates, then the way
to optimize the array design is to understand
  203   Fri May 13 10:52:27 2011 JanMiscSeismometrySTS-2 gutsI was flabbergasted when I saw this. There
are many really good seismometers with very
simple mechanical design and electronics.

seismometers like STS-2 and GS-13. We got
a GS-13 from LLO (broken in several ways).

allows us to access the parts "during
runtime" and operate it as a prototype.
