    Abstract

    Ocean waves interacting in shallow water at the shore generate land waves propagating inland. To study these waves vertical, horizontal and tilt seismic noise were measured simultaneously at one location. Vibration isolators designed for gravitational wave research were used for detection. Cross-correlation between the above components was calculated. We found correlations between all of them. However, only the correlation between horizontal and vertical motions could be addressed to land waves, and other correlations are thought to be due to local rigid body motion of the large building in which the experiments were located.
