Abstract : Studies of short-period seismic noise were conducted and are presented. Studies that are in progress are: a study of higher mode surface waves from earthquakes and a study of the 2 cps peak in noise. The status of the special orientation program is discussed and a schedule for completion of this task is given. Appendix 1 presents a summary of the results obtained over the last few years in the study of the types of waves present in short-period seismic noise. Appendix 2 presents an almost completed study on the statistics of short-period noise. (Author)
