Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to determine the characteristics of local apparently random long period ground tilts. Instruments were built and placed at an existing test site building at Weston, Mass. to continuously monitor and record the ground tilts. These tilt recordings were then compared with some of the many known sources of disturbances for determining any correlations between the sources and the tilts. (Author)
