Geology Raspberry Shake


UGA Geology Raspberry Shake Station View


UGA Geology - R7C73The RS3D is an advanced seismograph featuring three orthogonally positioned geophone velocity sensors, for millisecond accuracy and quality of data to record seismic activity of all magnitudes, both vertically and laterally. The three high precision seismometer sensors combine together with a digitizer, hyper-damper and computer, all into a highly portable single unit. With a sample rate of 100 samples per second and a data shipment rate of four packets per second, it is Earthquake Early Warning Compatible. Monitor local and regional seismicity, geothermal activity, micro-seismic motion, and of course watch as waves from large earthquakes roll in from around the world.

The RS3D has the capabilities for detecting ground motion in the vertical and horizontal dimensions, providing the user with a more complete view of the Earth motion in all three axes (east, north, and vertical; triaxial). This is especially useful for users who want a clearer picture of an earthquake’s S waves, which generally are more prominent across the horizontal plane.
