Installing ground-shaking detection instrument

A man wearing cold-weather gear and standing on a high coastal bluff points to an instrument that is mounted on short a pole.

Detailed Description

USGS scientist Cordell Johnson points to the Raspberry Shake, a sensitive instrument used to detect ground shaking. Johnson mounted the Raspberry Shake to an aluminum pole which he will then drive into the ground to bury the instrument beneath the tundra. This process will help isolate it from the wind.
