I would like to know if a specific seismometer can measure 1 micron/sec velocity. I have a few specs from the datasheet but I'm not a seismologist and am trying to figure out how to relate the specs to one another.

I have:

Velocity output band: 30s (0.03Hz) to 100 Hz
Output Sensitivity: 2400 V/m/s
Peak/Full scale output: Differential: +- 20V 
Sensor dynamic range: 137 dB @ 5 Hz

Thanks in advance!


create a bench test using an acceleramentor and a transducer since their values are known then equate the results to your sesimo

    $\begingroup$ Hi Chuck, welcome to stackexchange. This is a rather terse answer and, while it does offer a way forward, I think the asker of the question was hoping it was possible to tell from the datasheet. Would you consider expanding it and, if the answer cannot be determined from the datasheet, explaining why not? $\endgroup$ – Semidiurnal Simon May 11 '18 at 6:44
