Characterization of Gravity Gradient Noise at LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory), Livingston, LA

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The researchers wish to characterize the gravity gradient seismic
noise at the LIGO Livingston Observatory (LLO). LIGO (Laser
Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) consists of two almost
identical large scale land-based Michelson type interferometers
sponsored by the NSF. One of these, the LLO, is located in Livingston,
LA and the other is at Hanford, WA. This will be a continuation of
