Abstract : The manual contains procedures for calibrating and measuring certain parameters of short period seismometers, viz, 0.2 sec to 5 sec period, and for the long term evaluation of seismograph response. Calibration and evaluation is carried out in three phases: Preliminary Checkout, Field Calibration/System Checkout, and Long Term Evaluation. Preliminary seismometer checkout occurs at the LMC and consists of measuring all significant parameters. After preliminary testing is complete, the seismometer is transported to the field for system checkout and redetermination of certain parameters. Finally, an evaluation program is conducted to collect the seismometer performance data while operating in the Montana LASA environment. (Author)
