IST Studies Waves

Across Campus


The University Institute of Sci-
ence and Technology runs a seis-
mograph station in a quiet, wood-
ed area some six miles from cam-
pus in an effort to discover the
process of shock wave transmis-
Thousands of earthquakes occur
throughout the world; some of
them go unnoticed and others are
of such magnitude that their
tremors travel great distances. It
is these movements of the earth,
whether noticeable or not, which,
the seismograph station records.
Five delicate seismographs have
been placed in a well a quarter of
a mile beneath the earth's sur-
face to escape background noises
caused by objects or conditions
above ground. Another seismo-
graph is at the top of the well.
In addition, there are six seis-
mographs in a shallow under-
ground' vault adjacent to the well
at the Botanical Gardens. They
make up one of 125 such stations
established all over the world by
the United States government toa
increase basic skills in seismology.
Both installations are on duty
continuously, but record different
types of information in different
ways, for various shock waves ra-

diate through the earth following a
There are long period surface
waves which can last many min-
utes, and short period waves oscil-
lating several times a second. Some
earth movements can be as small
as one-hundred millionth of an
The seismographs in the vault
record both long and short waves
on photographic paper which must
be developed before it can be read.
They also record all earth move-
ments, whether or not from
These seismograms are checked
over once weekly by scientists
working under the direction of
Prof. James T. Wilson, acting di-
rector of the IST, who also is
chairman of the National Com-
mittee on Seismological stations
of the National Academy of Sci-
ences-National Research Coun-
One of these researchers is Prof.
John M. De Noyer of the geology
department and an IST associate
research geophysicist. He uses the
information in studies of seismic
wave propagation and in teaching

graduate students principles of
earthquake seismology.
The seismograms then are sent
to the United States Coast and
Geodetic Survey to become part of
the permanent file on such data.
All 125 stations in the world-wide
network do the same.
The well installation, however,
is uniquely that of the University
as part of the work being done by
the IST Acoustic and Seismics
Laboratory under U.S. Air Force
This data taken from known sit-
uations is applied to analysis of
distant earthquakes.
At present recordings from the
well are made in an instrumented
van at the site. But Willis indi-
cates that by next fall information
from the seismographs will be
transmitted over four special tele-
phone lines to the Willow Run
Laboratories of the seismics and
acoustics laboratory.
He reports that once the instal-
lation is completed, determination
of the probable location and
strength of an earthquake could
be detailed by geophysicists in
about 30 minutes.

PARKS AND OPEN SPACE-One of Ann Arbor's plans calls for the expansion of parks and recrea-
tion facilities and the retension of green space and to beautify a growing city. The shaded areas
indicate the various types of parks and open space allocated by last year's 20-year Parks and Open
Space plan.

additional facilities. Play areas
should be included in other parks,
the plan asserts.
It notes that play areas are lo-
cated in areas where there is no
backyard play space and that there
is enough space in the city. Fur-
ther, the city should not take re-
sponsibility for watchin'g the chil-
dren at the park and the park can
only best serve those living on
the block where it is located.
The report makes no specific
recommendations about open space
fi policy, saying that it should be
considered in other city planning.
However, it warns that the major

entrances to the city should be
protected from commercial en-
croachment and suggests 300 ft.
right of way for the Huron Park-
Add Land
The plan proposes two schemes
for implementing the program.
Under one, the city would continue
to follow its current policy of add-
ing park land each year and de-
veloping it immediately. This
would cost $2.1 million in 20 years,
or approximately $3500 an acre
for the additional 710 acres need-
ed. The plan would be 64 per cent
implemented in 20 years. The fed-
eral government under its Open
Space Land Grant Program would
pay $420,000.
The second scheme calls for the
city spending $1.326 million for
buying and developing most of the
parkland now at $2000 an
acre. The program would be fi-
nanced by a 20-year obligation
bond that must be approved by 60
per cent of the electorate. The fed-
eral government would pay $240,-
The total cost may be lowered
by private gifts, the report notes.
Acquire Land
The city is taking several steps
toward implementing this plan.
The planning commission recent-
ly recommended that the city ac-
quire land for three parks.
One would be combined neigh-
boorhood park and underground

water storage site on the Hanson
property, west of Maple Rd. Two
others would be playground sites,
one in the Adare Rd.-Washtenaw
Ave. area and the other in the
Spruce Dr.-Devonshire Rd. area.
The Adare Rd. site was not spec-
ified in the plan, but is in the gen-
eral vicinity of Bedford Rd.-Over-
ridge Dr. site now being used for
a school.
Buy Ponds
Aside from purchasing the Les-
lie property for a park and new
golf course, the city is in the final
stages of buying four Huron River
ponds on the northern and east-
ern edge of the city,as suggested
in the plan.
The ponds-Barton, Argo, Ged-
des and Superior Ponds-were de-
veloped by Detroit Edison Co. for
electric power purposes forty
years ago, but are no longer need-
The city will purchase them for
$400,000 with a possible $120,000
coming from the federal govern-
ment. The city would pay $80,000
a year out of utilities and sewage
treatment department f u n d s.
These two agencies currently lse
the ponds.
The federal government agreed
to supply $120,000 toward the pur-
chase through its open space pro-
The purchase includes both
shore and flowage rights, allowing
for park development along the
ponds, City Administrator Guy C.
Larcom, Jr. said.
The new zoning code, adopted in
January, also provides for contin-
uing Ann Arbor's scenic beauty.
Its regulations requiring develop-
ers to maintain the land's natural
beauty and provide for parks help
maintain Ann Arbor scenic condi-
The plan especially emphasized
the good effects of the judicious
enforcement of this ordinance.
Meanwhile, the University also
is engaged in planning and is at-
tempting to coordinate its efforts
with the city.

ning and city relations.
