Seminar: Recent advances in land seismic acquisition technology

by Dr Tim Dean, Research Fellow, Exploration Geophysics, Curtin University

Thursday 31 January 2019, 11AM – 12PM

ABSTRACT: Despite a downturn in the land seismic acquisition industry the pace of technical innovation has not slowed; in just the last four years there have been ten new land seismic acquisition systems introduced.  These new systems are lighter, record data for longer, and produce higher quality data than those previously available.

Advances have not been restricted to the receiver side, with new seismic sources and positioning systems being introduced.  In this presentation I outline these recent advances and will show samples of many of the new nodes that have been introduced.
