The Case Study of using R-sensors' molecular-electronic seismic sensors (pdf) on Sakhalin and Kunashir islands in cooperation with
Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics of the Far Eastern branch of the Russian academy of sciences.
The project aimed at studying seismicity of Sakhalin with the use of seismic sensors of a new type. The challenge was to study the structure of the lithological section's top and to clarify
compositions and properties of the soil at the equipment locations.
The proposed solution included broadband seismometers CME-6111, data loggers NDAS-8226 and hydrophones - those were specially developed for the study.
The results showed that R-sensors' molecular-electronic instruments in terms of the main metrological parameters (frequency and dynamic ranges, self-noise levels) reach the best models of electromechanical instruments and can be used in processing ongoing seismological information.
The study was conducted by explorers of Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics and the Sakhalin branch of Geophysical Servey (far-eastern Russia).
