The analysis of long term seismological data collected underground in the M\'atra Mountains, Hungary, using the facilities of the M\'atra Gravitational and Geophysical Laboratory (MGGL) is reported. The laboratory is situated inside the Gy\"ongy\"osoroszi mine, Hungary, 88m below the surface. This study focuses on the requirements of the Einstein Telescope (ET), one of the planned third generation gravitational wave observatories, which is designed for underground operation. After a short…

The article reviews the current state of the field, and presents new analyses especially with respect to the impact of seismic scattering on gravity perturbations, active gravity noise cancellation, and time-domain models of gravity perturgations from atmospheric and seismic point sources.

Einstein telescope site selection: Seismic and gravity gradient noise

Gravity gradient noise generated by seismic displacements may be the limiting factor for the sensitivity of third-generation gravitational wave detectors at frequencies below 10 Hz. A finite element
