Rock concerts generating events on seismographs.

Do you like music?   Who doesn’t?  If you add music to geophysics it’s all good.  It was fun times when I found a couple of sites that talk about seismographs recording rock concerts.   The first link is totally in Dutch (Wij houden om Amsterdam te bezoeken!).

Here is the link (you need to click on the video in the left center to get the seismotastic details).

The next link started my interest in this.  Down under (NZ) the actual recording from a seismic station were posted along with a blog.  Here is the blog.  The site is linked to the this page also for quick reference later.

In my own work we had recorded trains using 3D reflection arrays.  The ground roll was fierce and surprisingly large.

Enjoy the season!
