Technical Paper: Characterization of Noise Modes in Multicomponent (4C) Towed-Streamer

Society: EAGE
Paper Number: Z013
Presentation Date: 2012


The design of a seismic streamer must balance between optimizing for acoustic performance, robustness and handling requirements. The mechanical properties of a streamer will strongly impact the acoustic performance by shaping the noise modes experienced by the streamer and the filterability of the noise as measured by the sensors in the streamer. Development of a multicomponent streamer requires extensive analytical and numerical modelling to optimize the acoustic performance. In this abstract, we present the use of three-axis accelerometers, which has allowed detailed understanding of the in-situ motions of the cable, and enabled the development of a multicomponent streamer platform.
