Geodynamic processes occurring in active regions of the planet are manifested in various geophysical fields. The task of monitoring the processes of cracking is urgent, and the successful separation of the magnetotelluric field into endogenous and exogenous components allows us to detect the moment of activation of cracking. The solution of the problem of locating the activated volume is possible with the help of a three-component gradient installation for recording the seismoacoustic field near the day surface.

A multichannel (21 channels) system has been developed to record seismic-acoustic signals from a three-component gradient setup, which provides continuous synchronous recording of seismic signals with a duration of up to three days.

A portable PC is used as a recorder and information storage device. The connection between the PC and the ADC unit is made with a UTP-5 network cable (length 50 m). Data transmission is carried out via the Ethernet protocol. The unit is powered by 3 batteries. The maximum current consumption on each of the supplying batteries is 0.5 A.

In August 2021, together with the field team of the LDMS (Laboratory of Deep Magnetotelluric Studies), field tests of the developed seismic recording unit were carried out. To check the operation of the installation and record seismoacoustic signals, point Ukok-2 was chosen, located near the Ukok gorge of the Naryn region. The sensors were buried in the ground and additionally rammed for better mechanical contact.

For registration and preprocessing of signals obtained with the help of a gradient seismic recording installation, a laptop and special software, also developed at the LAHD, were used.



Viewing and preliminary processing of experimental data in the field is carried out by the ExpDataProc_x64.exe program.


During the period from August 26 to September 7, 2021, when the installation was in operation, a large amount of data was obtained, which will be used for further research.
