Advances in seismology and extensions of its software have made it more and more essential to practice high-sensitivity observationsonartificial earth tremors (explosions) or on usual ones. this means specifically to investigating the seismic stipulations in huge business centres. there are various significant towns with one million population or extra in seismically-active areas. within the USSR, this is applicable to the capitals of the Union Republics corresponding to Alma Ata, Frunze, Tashkent, Dushanbe, and Ashkhabad, in addition to to dozens of neighborhood entres and towns with vast business improvement. Seismic type and earthquake forecasting must be thought of relating to the extension or construction of towns in such areas, and this is able to be most unlikely with no particular research of the seismicity, which includes upgrading the instru­ psychological remark community. The call for for precise details at the seismicity raises with each extension to the development. A profitable answer right here may be carried out basically by way of taking account of a few particular elements, the most one being the excessive point of seismic noise end result of the actions in huge centres, which restricts the sensitivity of the gear and makes it very unlikely to list susceptible neighborhood earth tremors, that are of specific curiosity during times of relative seismic calm. Stations at sufficiently nice distances from the town don't experience town noise, yet additionally they fail to checklist susceptible neighborhood earth tremors. additionally, the accuracy ofobservation falls for these tremors that may be recorded as a result nice distances among stations.

NOISE NATURE The data from various sources on the variations in noise level in boreholes are in general agreement, but workers disagree on the nature of the noise. In some papers [24-26], the noise is treated as a combination of various Rayleigh modes, while in [27] and other papers the main features of the noise are explained from the viewpoint of stationary compression waves. In [28] there is a survey of research extending over many years on the background levels in boreholes in various geological structures, and the seismic noise is ascribed to a mixture of bulk and surface waves, with the different ranges in period corresponding to certain combinations of wave types.

The sharpest decrease in the background occurs in the upper part of the section. The level decreases by about one and a half 35 NOISE IN BOREHOLES IJ Il,o tl,1f / 2 'I 0 /1/ til H (m) 21/1/ (b) Ifl/I/ I \ -i 01/1/ \ Ifl/I/ 11/1/1/ ' - - - - - - - - - - - - - 4 - - - - - 1 < - - ' Fig. 12b. orders of magnitude at 350-400 m, but the decrease at large depths is considerably slower. The decrease is on average by only a factor 2 in the range 400-1000 m. Two series of observations at different times have been performed in the range from 1000 to 1800-1900 m.

NOISE REGULARITIES IN THREE BOREHOLES The daytime noise level in the Chilik borehole is less by about a factor 2 than that in the Alma Ata one or by a factor 4 relative to the Tashkent one. The general level in the Tashkent borehole is higher than that in the Alma Ata one by about a factor 2 [35]. The noise amplitude in the Alma Ata borehole is 12-13 nm at 900 m and is close to that in the Tashkent borehole at night. The different noise levels occur because the Tashkent borehole is in the centre of the city near major indust~ial organizations and other noise sources, while the Alma Ata one is at the edge of the city and comparatively remote from major noise sources.
