Paper Abstract

In this paper we present and discuss the scientific data recorded along one month of data taking of two mechanical monolithic horizontal sensor prototypes located in a blind-ended (side) tunnel 2000 ft deep in the Homestake mine (South Dakota, USA), chosen to host the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory (DUSEL). The main goal of this test is to provide preliminary data to characterize the Homestake site in the frequency band 10-4 ÷ 30Hz and to estimate the level of Newtonian noise, information necessary to understand the feasibility of underground gravitational-wave interferometers sensitive at 1Hz and below. The recorded scientific data and all the technical information obtained with this test are very useful also to understand the performances of the monolithic sensors in the very low frequency band (10-6 ÷ 10-3 Hz) and to organize an experiment for the low frequency seismic characterization of the Homestake site with monolithic sensors positioned at different levels and orientations.
