John Lahr stated that; “Since the AS-1 samples the amplitude of the seismic signal about 6 times per second, clearly high frequencies will not be well represented. The highest frequency that it's theoretically possible to record faithfully is one half of the sample rate.” You interpret this as six/2 = max frequency = 3Hz You tend not... [more]

Greetings, I am trying to understand the band pass filters and have a few questions. 1. John Lahr stated that; "Since the AS-1 samples the amplitude of the seismic signal about 6 times per second, clearly high frequencies will not be well represented. The highest frequency that it's theoretically possible to record faithfully is one half of the sample rate." So if a sample is taken every .17 seconds (6 times per second) and you divide that in half you get .33seconds. Therefore seism... [more]

Greetings and Happy New Year, I just wanted to share with everyone a problem I had with my AS-1 and the solution. I left for China on Aug 10th and as soon as I got to Chengdu and checked the school seismograph; http://www.pcds.org/share/earthquake/ it had stopped working. The seismograph was not recording anything; it was if the seismometer was no longer connected to the CPU. The next day I checked back and it was recording but the trace was wandering across the screen like a chicken in... [more]
