Continuous Very Broad Band seismographic data from station Terra Nova Bay (TNV).Entry ID: SeismographicData_TNVstation
Abstract: Permanent seismographic station established at Terra Nova Bay, the Italian
Station in Antarctica located in Victoria Land, in order to record very broad
band and high dynamics signals in continuous way. The primary seismometers are
three-component Streckeisen STS-1/VBB sensors, data loggers are Quanterra Q4120
and Q680, which provide data with a resolution of 24 bits, corresponding to 144
dB dynamics. Accurate timing is provided by a GPS receiver.
