I am doing a capstone project for a sensor systems course and I would like to write a python program to acquire, process and present seismic data like that of seismic surveys. Is it possible using just an Arduino and an accelerometer?

I have access to the following accelerometer:

SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout - MMA8452Q


Accelerometers have already been used for acquiring seismic data in a lot of studies: see this review, and references therein.

As for the code part, there is a Python framework for seismology: ObsPy.
