Short summary
For comparison and as guideline for future seismic experiments we describe our efforts during the installation of thirty temporary seismic stations in Eastern Austria and Western Slovakia. The stations – deployed in the framework of the AlpArray project – are commonly placed in abandoned or unused cellars or buildings. We describe the technical realization of the deployment and discuss the seismic noise conditions at each site and potential relations to geology or station design.
