[MTT41-P02] High resolution barometer array and broadband seismic observation in Palau
3-min talk in an oral session
Keywords:atmospheric gravity wave, broad band sesimic record, ground tilting
Over 100 sec in period, atmospheric gravity waves recorded frequently in barometer array. Theoretically signal intensity of gravity wave is decreased in some ten seconds in period. In recent measurement, remarkable some ten seconds pressure variation is detected and propagated in this barometer array. Apparent velocity is also similar with gravity wave and accompany with longer period signal. It is interpreted as one of gravity wave.
In seismic signal, horizontal components detect similar signal and initiate just same time with pressure data. Vertical component doesn't show remarkable signal, so that ground tilt is occurred by pressure variation. Rail fall is also one of sources of ground tilting. However NOAA weather station that is close to a seismic and barometer station does not report heavy rainfall and small shower in each region. Both phases of seismic and barometer is quite synchronized. Filtered barometer signal shows many high-frequency event-like signals covering all stations. Most cases associate with ground tilting recorded in seismic data. It means that horizontal components include ground tilting as noise until some ten seconds. We will evaluate coefficient of conversion from pressure variation to ground tilting and possibility of reduction of the component. And we will report the characteristics of wide frequency range propagating barometer signal.
