In the open plains where vibrators and cable-based systems are commonly used, seismic surveys are relatively straightforward. But in today’s reality, most surveys are occurring in dual-or multi-terrain environments where mixed-source and hybrid system operations are the only way to image the target sufficiently.
In this context, the foothills and plains can pose a real challenge. Deploying cables in the lower elevations and autonomous nodes in the higher altitudes can be as simple as outfitting a crew with two different sets of ground electronics, or can be as difficult as hiring professional climbers to achieve the optimal coverage. Regardless, equipment handling and troubleshooting in higher elevations must be simplified.View Products
What does it all mean? Vibroseis terms can be confusing, and there are many terms used in seismic acquisition today. This is exacerbated by the fact that, in some instances, the same term is used with a different meaning depending on the context it is being applied. Our team here at INOVA discuss vibroseis terminology and explains terms like fundamental ground force and peak ground force as well as other common terms used today.
