Continuous observation of micro-earthquakes has been done by a network of the Tottori Micro-earthquake Observatory since 1964 and it has been done by a network of the Hokuriku Micro-earthquake Observatory since 1971. These networks were improved by setting up the telemeter observation system and by the development of recording system since 1976.
Signals of three components of short period seismic waves observed at 8 satellite stations are transmitted continuously through the telephone lines to the Tottori Observatory. Signals observed at 7 satellite stations are transmitted to the Hokuriku Observatory. Only vertical components of selected three stations are transmitted from the Tottori and the Hokuriku Observatory to the Disaster Prevention Research Institute in Uji and continuously recorded by long term ink-writing recorders.
These seismic waves are recorded by three kinds of recording systems at each observatory. Seismic activity is continuosly monitored by newly developed long term ink-writing recorders for vertical components of all stations. Earthquakes observed at more than two of key stations are recorded by data-recorder and pen-recorder with 14 channel recording units started by a triggering signal.
Overall frequency range of the telemetering observation system is from 1 to 50Hz and dynamic range is about 40db. Maximum time delay of lines is about 20msec. This time delay is constant for each line and can be corrected for the accurate calculation.
