Abstract

This characterization of the seismic noise environment of Antarctica, documentation of instrument performance, and comparisons of installation conditions (e.g., ice vaults vs. rock sites) is intended to facilitate optimization of future seismological deployments in such environments. We analyze data from a range of recent experiments to provide a broad geographical characterization of Antarctica’s seismic noise environment, which can now include more substantial observations from regions that are free from anthropogenic noise contamination.
