Abstract

Two methods for accelerometer instrument correction are described: (1) a direct numerical differentiation of recorded accelerograms from which high-frequency digitization errors have been filtered out and (2) an ideal “mathematical accelerometer” with a natural frequency significantly higher than the natural frequency of the recording instrument. Although both methods give good results, the first one is recommended for standard use.
