Accelerometer calibration by primary and secondary means is now very well covered both in low and medium frequency range. This is obviously not the case for seismometers which are widely used in the world. Up to now, seismometers only have internal checks thanks to an integrated coil. Calibration of these devices address different challenges like large mass and volumes, non-rotatable devices, specific mounting. This inter laboratory comparison will help to investigate these fields and to give feedback to develop a methodology to calibrate seismometers.
