Sophie---It is always good to hear from young people interested in seismic
related topics.  Sensors generally are in three categories----Geophones, the
AS-l Educational Design, and the "Lehman" long period type design.  Each of
these designs have their own strengths in terms of simplicity and
performance.  Information and plans on any of these sensors are available on
the Public Seismic Network, or sources suggested.  Don't hesitate to ask
questions--there is a lot of good help on the Public Seismic Network--
