Quality of Seismic Sites:

PSD

The power spectral density curves (red curves) are referred to different one-hour records from a one-day helicorder. The new low-noise model (NLNM; green curve) and new high-noise model (NHNM; blue curve) levels (Peterson, 1993) are superimposed on the figure.

PSD Spectrograms:

PSD levels as a function of the period versus time in one-month-long spectrograms.

H/V Ratio

Horizontal to vertical (H/V) spectral ratios for each time windows (red curves). The blue curve represents the mean values of the H/V ratios, while the error bars in green represent the standard deviation.
