Technical Paper: Instrument Test in a Point-Receiver Land Seismic System

Society: SEG
Paper Number:
Presentation Date: 2010

To ensure raw seismic data quality and field operation efficiency, a new instrument test method has been developed and implemented on a high-channel-count point-receiver seismic system based on geophone accelerometers. Differing from conventional seismic system instrument test methodology that cannot test each individual geophone in an array, the new method can test each individual sensor up to full acquisition chain at a large channel count in a very short time. Test results can identify individual bad sensors quickly and hence ensure field data quality and operational efficiency.
