The whole earth in the location of
the geophone should move in unison
so I think that is not the issue.
It is a matter of signal to noise ratio
and since the slab rides upon the ground like a ship in the ocean
I think it to be very important to put the geophone
directly on the ocean (ground) and not on any slab
that has other activity upon it.
I use an alarm to record my files and since
relocating underground and a few feet from the slab my false alarms are few. You should fix somehow your geophone to the ground
so that in the event of motions that exceed 1g (32f/s^2
things will not be destroyed. Greater than 1G and your
geophone will hop like a kaninchen out of its rightful place.
A whole firetruck has been known to do this and if a person
had been next to it thay might have been crushed to death.
Those trucks may have 2000 gallons of water at 8.1Avodupoise
pounds per gallon.
