Lead PI: Dr. David Schaff , Dr. Felix Waldhauser

Unit Affiliation: Seismology, Geology and Tectonophysics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

June 2005 - June 2008
North America ; Asia ; California ; China
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will develop waveform cross correlation to improve seismic event detection.

OUTCOMES: Found that can reduce detection thresholds by one full magnitude unit using a correlation detector as compared to a standard energy detector.
