Optical polarization data from Curie


This dataset contains optical polarization data measured from optical channels traversing the Curie submarine cable connecting Los Angeles (USA) to Valparaiso (Chile). This data have been used to demonstrates the detection of seismic events and ocean swells in the primary microseism band. More details on the data can be found in the following publication:
