Seismic Acquisition System (GeoEel)   

Description

The seismic acquisition system is used to acquire seismic reflection information of the seafloor. The system has a 500 m long, 40-channel, GeoEel streamer with 12.5 m group spacing towed at 4kts. Sercel GI-Source 210 seismic air impulse sources are used. Use of the seismic system triggers additional technical resources in permitting, personnel (MNF support and Marine Mammal Observers supplied by the science party), time and logistics. Seismic acquisition operations can only be undertaken during daylight hours.

Purpose
