Newtonian noise and ambient ground motion for gravitational wave detectors

Beker, M G; Van Den Brand, J.; Hennes, E.; Rabeling, David


Fluctuations of the local gravitational field as a result of seismic and atmospheric displacements will limit the sensitivity of ground based gravitational wave detectors at frequencies below 10 Hz. We discuss the implications of Newtonian noise for future third generation gravitational wave detectors. The relevant seismic wave fields are predominately of human origin and are dependent on local infrastructure and population density. Seismic studies presented here show that considerable seismic...[Show more]
