Our global seismology sensors are the best in the world

Global observational seismology has been described as an inverted telescope with which we can probe the deepest parts of the Earth’s interior...and Nanometrics is dedicated to developing the best “inverted telescopes” on Earth.

 

Data of global importance

Seismic station in a permanent networkData from global seismic networks is essential for researchers to better understand the deep interior of the Earth. National and international earthquake and tsunami monitoring agencies rely on global networks as a principal data source for earthquake response and tsunami warning and as a contributor to nuclear treaty monitoring.

 

Very broadband (often referred to as VBB) sensors are typically the instruments of choice for global seismology studies. These instruments are able to resolve the lowest frequencies resulting from Earth's tides and free oscillations of the Earth. 

 

At Nanometrics we understand the value of global observational seismology, for education, for research, for civil protection. Because of this, we’re dedicated to the pursuit of designing and manufacturing the highest-performing sensors to acquire the best possible seismic data. 

 

Trillium 360 is ideal for global seismology

Our new line of Trillium 360 seismometers are the highest performing seismometers in the world. Available in vault, posthole or borehole form factors, the Trillium 360 is ideal for global observational seismology. 

 

The Trillium 360 offers the widest available bandwidth of flat response, 360 seconds to 150 Hz, giving you full bandwidth coverage for global seismology and teleseismic monitoring with a single instrument. It also offers an extended low-frequency range useful to out beyond a 10,000-second time period and self noise below the NLNM from 300 s to 10 Hz.
