Hi, I wish to add a simple seismic detector to a current project (environmental monitor).

I have absolutely no experience in this field, but it looks useful and fascinating.

Questions are:

1. is this device able to detect medium scale heartquakes (3 to 6 Richter within 100km) ?

2. if yes, does anybody did it, available to share experiences?

3. if no to the previous, is there any guide which explains algorithms, calculations and mechanical plans?

 

Thanks in advance
