If not, can someone help me better understand how accurate digitizer sampling has to be?
I have been working on making a seismometer that meets a bunch of specs and one of the specs is that the timing accuracy of the instrument was to be sub millisecond. Another specs calls for a sampling rate of 100 samples per second (or one sample every 10 ms).
So here is my question, if the time between each sample is 10 ms what is gained by timing better that 1 ms?
I have another question: If the P wave velocities can range from 300 meters per second to more that 6000 meters per second depending on what it is traveling through, what is gained with a timing accuracy of less than 1 ms if you are not sure what the P wave is traveling through?
All comments welcome.
