Vibroseis is based on the analysis and processing of reflected waves upon geological boundaries, just as reflection seismology. The reflections depend on density and seismic velocity contrasts. Sections can highlight stratigraphic boundaries, tectonic features, dips, faults, folds or reservoirs.

In addition to parameters such as source power, number of active traces, trace spacing and shot spacing, the use of a vibrating source allows the optimization of emitted frequencies (boundaries and duration) to reach each study’s specific targets.

Data acquisition in urban environments could be complicated due to the deployment of cables along profile lines. Our state-of-the-art wireless equipment (WirelessSeismic) allow us to overcome those barriers.

In order to answer to certain issues requiring very high resolution in the underlying first tens of meters, a high frequency vibrator or a horizontal vibrator (S-waves) can be harnessed.
