To build and operate a Lehman seismograph you need five things:

1. The mechanical device

2. The sensor and signal processing electronics

3. The data acquisition software

4. The data analysis software

5. Somewhere to put it!

You can in fact buy all of these things, but I chose to create all of them myself (except the last!) because, for me, that's what brings the excitement and satisfaction of such a project. However, if you have little expertise in some of these areas, you may still gain the excitement of detecting an earthquake on the other side of the world by combining parts that you have made with components you have bought - follow my links above to find out how.

Once you have done all this, then you can obtain

6. results like these.
