Stratigraphy and tectonic structures assessment

A seismic reflection survey has been performed in Italy to map geological layers and identify potential structures in the first kilometer below ground level.

By using a mix of a powerful weight drop and a heavy vibrator along 6 km of lines, we have produced very high-resolution sections imaging several hundred meters of sediments. Advanced noise filtering and processing was applied (PSTM, PSDM).

TWT reflection seismic section. Sediment layers are clearly identified and several tectonic structures are visible.
