Microtremor is a low amplitude (in the order of micrometres) ambient vibration of the ground caused by man-made or atmospheric disturbances. The term Ambient Vibrations is now preferred to talk about this phenomenon.Microtremor is a low amplitude (in the order of micrometres) ambient vibration of the ground caused by man-made or atmospheric disturbances.

The earth pulsation is a kind of geophysical information with rich connotation. It is excited by random vibration sources (including natural factors, such as earthquake, wind vibration, volcanic activity, ocean wave, etc.; human factors, such as traffic, power machine, engineering construction, etc.) and propagated to the ground after multiple reflection and refraction by different rock and soil interfaces of the site. It is a stable and non repetitive random fluctuation of the ground.
At the same time, the different frequency amplitude and action duration of ground pulse will cause different response of rock and soil. Because of the excellent characteristics of the earth pulsation, scholars all over the world have studied it in many aspects. The study of the earth pulsation in China began in the 1960s, mainly focusing on the field with predominant period
The research and application of the relationship between geological classification, predominant period and earthquake damage.
In recent years, some progress has been made in the field of geotechnical engineering. However, due to the complexity of the generation mechanism and influencing factors of the ground pulsation, the application of the characteristics of the ground pulsation in civil engineering is still in the preliminary stage.
