The NASA InSight mission deployed onto Mars' surface the SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Internal Structure) instrument shortly after its landing on November, 26, 2018; a six-axes seismometer equipped with both a long-period three-axes Very Broad Band (VBB) instrument and a three-axes short-period (SP) instrument.
These six sensors will cover a broad range of the seismic bandwidth, from 0.01 Hz to 50 Hz, with possible extension to longer periods. Data are transmitted in the form of continuous VBB and SP components and are augmented by requested event data with higher sampling rate.
SEIS will improve upon the existing resolution of Viking's Mars seismic monitoring by a factor of ~2500 at 1 Hz and ~200000 at 0.1 Hz.
Contrary to Viking, the seismometer has been deployed via a robotic arm directly onto Mars' surface and is protected against temperature and wind by highly efficient thermal and wind shielding.
Very low noise has therefore been obtained, especially during the night by the VBB instrument.
These data consist of all SEIS data, including the House Keeping data requested to monitor the instrument health.
Use of the SEIS data must be at least acknowledged by referencing the SEIS experiment paper (Lognonné et al., 2019) and the SEIS team papers used by the user for the analysis. For a collection of SEIS papers, see Banerdt and Russel, 2017 and Banerdt and Russel, 2019.
All SEIS data used must be referenced by the SEIS data doi
In addition, the following sentence must be also provided in the acknowledgement :
We acknowledge NASA, CNES, partner agencies and Institutions (UKSA, SSO, DLR ; JPL, IPGP-CNRS, ETHZ, IC, MPS-MPG) and the operators of JPL, SISMOC, MSDS, IRIS-DMC and PDS for providing SEED SEIS data.
