# Acoustic vs. seismic waveforms

Is it possible to correlate the atmospheric acoustic vs. ground seismic waveforms from a charge detonation?

Are there any physicists on this forum that recognise the acoustic and seismic waveform signatures from a charge detonation?

Acoustic, Seismic wave function equation:
$$\psi (x,t) = A \sin (\omega t - k x)$$

Acoustic, Seismic wave equation:
$$\nabla^2 \phi = \frac{1}{v^2} \frac{\partial^2 \phi}{\partial t^2}$$

Why do you always post in blue?

In what way are you looking to correlate them?

To measure the properties of the energy source(s).

En absentia of the raw computer data source information, the attachment is my first attempt at a classical approach at correlating the acoustic amplitudes with the seismic amplitudes properties.

Is there a correlation?

When a building implodes, does it collapse into its negative amplitude spike corresponding to a vacuum pressure after the previous positive energy amplitude spike resposible for the primary implosion initiation?

In simpler terms, do buildings implode under vacuum pressure?

Honestly I don't think you'd be able to do it without the original source data. However, I would pass you along to someone who I have seen do work in this area. You should try to get a hold of Tom Irvine over at VibrationData.com. I have seen him do seismic analysis on manmade events like this before. He does sometime post in the Vibration section of Engineering Tips.com as well.

seismic chronology...

I believe that I have found a solution to the seismic-acoustic chronological timeline.

The attachment is my second attempt using zero-time chronology.

EDT = UTC - 4:00:00

Seismic:
14:28:?? UTC
10:28:35.714 A.M. EDT

duration = 40 s - data start to data end

Acoustic:
duration = 31.19 s - peak 1 to peak 6a

Seismic Stereo...

Why are seismic waves recorded in mono instead of stereo?
