Transfer functions are given for all basic elements of the Seismic Research Observatory (SRO) seismograph system. These include the seismometer, response shaping filters, and anti-alias filters. With these transfer functions the amplitude and phase responses can be calculated at any frequency by the evaluation of a ratio of polynomials in s = iω. Amplitude and phase response plots and impulse responses are given for the most important overall transfer functions. In addition, long- and short-period group delays have been calculated by numerical differentation of phase responses. In the long-period case a simple polynomial approximation to the group delay is given as an aid in interpretation of data. The transfer functions are exact and follow from the integral design of the system.
