Hi !!

Hope you all are doing well,

I would like to know if a specific seismometer can measure 1 micron/sec velocity. I have a few specs from the datasheet but I'm not a seismologist and am trying to figure out how to relate the specs to one another.
Hi Krishna you should have a look at these two sites.

It will be dependent on the frequency of the signal so unless it the signal is in the passband of the seismometer then it becomes a bit more complicated.

Hi spec sheets are often hard to read I would suggest you let us know what sort of seismometer it is and then we might be able to help.
