Enabling new opportunities for frontier science in polar environments

In harsh polar environments you need to be confident that your instruments will operate properly, Nanometrics Polar Certified Instruments provide the certainty required for this challenging environment, having been extensively tested and field-proven.

Polar Certified Trillium CompactsField-Tested & Proven Polar Instrumentation

Our Polar Certified seismometers are engineered to operate at extreme polar temperatures, as low as -50C, for the coldest climates. The Polar Certification is applied to the instruments that have the specific polar hardware upgrades and have successfully passed the polar-rated testing procedure at our facilities.


The class-leading power consumption of Nanometrics instrumentation significantly reduces battery requirements, overall station size, and weight, providing the opportunity for higher-density, high-quality data acquisition that is relevant to solid Earth, glaciological, and climate-related studies. Many of  the Polar Certified seismometers are available with magnetic shielding for extremely low-noise observations in high latitude polar regions.
