Ted, I have found in my seismic studies that a very stable power supply,
coupled to a battery bank, and utilizing a sola ac power line regulator
leads to stability in the calibration, and operation of the system. It
provides on line time during power outages. RF shielding around the seismic
sensors removes transient EMF impulses. Computers are noisy and produce
various intensities of RF noise depending on how hard they are running, more
input and computing time means more  RF noise. 
Optical fiber line with Photo Electronic coupling is useful over long runs.
Build a system like this, install the sensors in a RF screen room, calibrate
and collect data.
Justify the expense as a tornado shelter. Buy a new fly rod and go fishing,
camping and trekking with the whole household.
