Nevada Seismological Laboratory, University of Nevada, Reno
Starting on October 1, 1995 the monitoring of seismicity within the southern Great Basin near Yucca Mountain was performed with a new digital network. This network features three-component recording with 24-bit A/D conversion in the field. Continuous data is collected at 20 sps, and event triggered windows are collected at 100 samples per second. A seismic bulletin of events is made by associating triggers occurring within a prescribed time window. classifying the local earthquake events, and locating the earthquakes and computing their magnitudes with conventional methods. This report covers the operational and seismic results of the third and fourth full years (FY98-99) of the improved, digitally based, monitoring.
