In this paper we present the scientific data recorded by tunable mechanical monolithic horizontal seismometers located in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the INFN, within thermally insulating enclosures onto concrete slabs connected to the bedrock. The main goals of this long-term large-band measurements are for the seismic characterization of the site in the frequency band 10−6÷10Hz and the acquisition of all the relevant information for the optimization of the sensors.

Ambient Noise Levels in the Continental United States

We present a new approach to characterize the background seismic noise across the continental United States. Using this approach, power spectral den- sity (PSD) is estimated at broadband seismic
