TERRITORIAL SEISMIC MONITORING
Instrumentation for geognostic investigation
Seismic monitoring is carried out in areas subject to risks related to a seismogenic activity, by acquiring the seisms with time and recording the seismograms. Seismic stations are used able to record in threshold or continuous type, and low frequency geophones or seismic accelerometers. The recording in the long period, of the earthquakes relative to a site or fairly large area allows to configure the seismic scenario of an area and evaluate the risk and vulnerability conditions. If the monitoring activity is supported by specific knowledge of geological and geo-technicaltype, we are talking about seismic Micro-zoning.
