The improvements in seismology made during the last 6 years and discussed at this Symposium are summarized. The principal gains have come from the choice of very quiet stations, from the use of large arrays and from the processing of the recorded signals. The overall gain in the ratio of signal/noise amplitude compared to typical earlier stations is of the order of 200. The consequences of this for seismology are discussed.
