Recent advances in land seismic acquisition technology

Dr Tim Dean 

 

(Research Fellow - Curtin University, Exploration Geophysics)

 

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. 

 

Tim has an Honours degree in Geophysics from Curtin University and a PhD in Physics from the University of New South Wales.  He spent more than twelve years working for WesternGeco and Schlumberger in a variety of roles related to surface and borehole seismic acquisition including field operations, software development and research located in Saudi Arabia, England, Norway and Australia.  After leaving Schlumberger he worked as a sports technology Project Advisor at Hawk-eye innovations (a division of Sony).  He joined the Department of Exploration Geophysics at Curtin University as a Research Fellow in August 2016.
