Seismic Acquisition Innovation, CSEG Virtual Learning Series (VLS)

By Andrea Crook, P.Geoph.


Seismic acquisition has changed significantly in the past ten years. Recording systems have switched from cabled to cable-less/nodal systems, vibroseis is beginning to replace explosives even in areas with rugged terrain, new seismic sources are being developed, and high trace density surveys are changing the way seismic data is acquired, processed, and interpreted. This presentation will focus on seismic acquisition innovations that are providing remarkable improvements in data quality, and will include excerpts from Andrea’s 2019 GeoConvention presentation, Transitioning to High Density Vibroseis, which won the 2019 Best Oral Presentation award.
