InSight: SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Investigating the Subsurface)

October 4, 2022. Version 12 of the SEIS MQS catalog has been added to the SEIS bundle.

September 30, 2022. InSight Release 14 includes new SEIS data from April 1 through June 30, 2022. This release also includes some revised files from releases 12 and 13. See the Release Notes for details.

SEIS measures seismic activity on Mars using a Very Broad Band (VBB) 3-axis seismometer and a Short Period (SP) 3-axis seismometer. It is protected on the surface from temperature and pressure variations by a dome-shaped Wind and Thermal Shield.

The SEIS data archived in PDS are also available through the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) and through the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP)
