The seismograms for the permanent KIK and MTO seismic stations are real; the TMP1-3 (temporary installations) seismograms are faked, and have been retracted by the journals in which they were published. The peak accelerations for the TMP stations are higher than for the others (1000-1500 Gal, or 1.0-1.5 g), which would have made them important for building design criteria.
