Instrumentation is the term to descibe all the equipment required to make a seismic station. This equipment is divided into three main sections:

Dataloggers - This section encompasses the equipment which take in data and stores it on some type of non-volatile media.

Power Systems - All the required equipment to keep a seismic station contiously powered throughout it's deployment.

Sensors - The equipment that actually detects and quantifies ground motion. The sensor sends this information to the datalogger through a cable.



Field Procedures - A trove of documents describing siting, installation, servicing, in-field quality control, and demobilization.

Controlled Sources - describing new "Thumper" active source available at PASSCAL.
