Ground Noise Survey at a Proposed Submarine Test Facility on Lake Travis
MetadataShow full item record
We conducted a brief survey of ground noise at a proposed submarine test facility on Lake Travis, northwest of Austin, Texas. The purpose of the survey was to find out the nature and level of the background seismic noise on the bottom of the lake at the site where the proposed submarine test facility would be located. Because of its immediate availability, we used a seismograph designed to acquire seismic data at the ocean floor. The survey was requested by Prof. Thomas Griffy of the Physics Department and Applied Research Laboratory of the University. This report describes the field survey, the data analysis and the results.
