Earthquake Observations in Strassburg


DURING the last twelve months, on more than one occasion I have been asked why it is that at the Kaiserlichen Hauptstation für Erdbebenforschung in Strassburg one type of instrument records earthquakes so very much more frequently than other types of instruments give records, although they are all installed in the same building. An answer to this is apparently to be found in an analysis of the Strassburg registers.
