Under Pressure – Multi-component seismic acquisition

Imaging the subsurface has become more and more complex. If we want to get a state-of-the-art image we might consider a slanted multi-component streamer acquisition and process it with a full waveform inversion to finish it off with a nice pre-stack Gaussian beam migration. Yeah… Even as a geophysics master student this is some tough […]

Recording a seismic wave – What’s new?

Streamers are an essential part in the marine seismic experiment. When I first came into geophysics, I learned that streamers are fluid-filled hoses with pressure probes. This might be right in the case of our streamer at the university which isn’t quite up to par with the newest developments out in the industry. Oil-filled seismic […]
