The high sensitivity required of interferometric gravitational wave detectors is such that environmental noise becomes a very important consideration. Local environmental noise may be partially or wholly eliminated by cross-correlating data from two widely displaced detectors; such a strategy, however, will not be immune to environmental noise that is global in nature. Thus the characterisation of global environmental noise is of vital importance to the detection of gravitational waves. In...[Show more]
