Kit for seismic research performance

A kit for seismic research performance is represented by a set used for seismological studies and consists of a recorder (portable ZETSENSOR set), task-specific software package and digital geophones joined by cables and forming a receiver line.

The kit for seismic research performance is used for performing measurements in various climatic zones. Splash-proof connections GSC-4H (Herma-4) are used for establishing a reliable connection between the geophones within the seismic system.

Light weight of the kit for seismic research performance (3,14 kg per 100 m of the measuring line) is attributed to using of 4-wired telemetric 6,5 mm cable.

of the Kit for seismic research performance

The kit for seismic research is a system for seismic surveys performance using digital geophones  ZET 7155, interconnected by cables and forming a receiver line. Cable line has up to 24 connection points for geophones. Receiver line is connected to the offline recorder  (portable system ZETSENSOR), which can be connected to a laptop or a tablet via USB cable or Wi-Fi connection.

Length of the cable is up to 250 m. Geophones are connected to the seismic streamer via GSC-4H (Herma-4) connection. The maximum number of digital geophones which can be connected to one seismic streamer is 24 pcs.

One more advantage is the use of 4-wired 6,5 mm cable enabling connection of any amount of digital geophones and contributes to the minimum possible weight of the measuring line (3,14 kg per 100 meters of measuring line).

The kit for seismic research performance has a number of additional advantages:

  • high data transfer capacity
  • stable quality of signal transmission for long distances
  • low noise level
  • high cost-efficiency
  • portability of the system due to the use of telemetric cable, which is 7 times lighter than similar analog cable

The figure shows 24-channel digital cable of the kit for seismic research performance (to the left), 16-channel analog cable (in the middle) and 24-channels analog cable (to the right).

The offline recorder is represented by portable  ZETSENSOR system (a set of interface modules placed inside of a compact plastic casing). Standard delivery scope includes:

  • offline recorder ZET 7173, (for the recording of seismic events and offline mode measurements data);
  • interface module ZET 7174, for connecting to the laptop via USB;
  • synchronization module ZET 7175, for geophones time sync based on satellites signals;
  • digital indicator  ZET 7178, (for indication of readings from each of the geophones, battery charge level, and SD-card memory indication);
  • logical analyzer ZET 7160, (for detecting seismic events following the impact hammer signal);
  • battery module.

Seismic surveys perfomance

using the Kit for seismic research performance

A seismic survey is a geophysical method of geological objects survey using elastic vibrations or seismic waves. The seismic surveys are based on two major methods – one of them is based on reflected waves and the other – on the refracted waves.

Seismic survey methodology is based on studying waves cinematics (i.e. the time of waves shifting from the source of impact to the seismic receivers, recording dynamics and strength of waves). Seismic event recording by means of a kit for seismic research performance is conducted in the following way: the geophones located in the survey area transmit mechanical oscillations into electric signal and send it to the offline recorder via the cable of the geophones line. The recorder registers and processes the signals. As a result of signal processing, one can define the depth of the geo-seismic section, its location, wave speed. Using these geo-seismic data one can obtain geological characteristics of the surveyed area.

The research depth is up to 250 meters depending on waves propagation environment. In order to obtain high-precision data, it is recommended to use longer measuring lines with a large amount of measuring channels.

The charts below depict information of seismic events registered by the kit for seismic research performance in the course of a test survey.

For the purpose of further analysis, the data is saved in the  Seg-Y format and is processed by RadExPro Software.

As a result of automated data processing, we can see an image of the seismic environment.

Then the seismiс sections are further processed in order to outline seismic borders and geological objects (this process implies participation of a specialist). As a result, we can see a seismic section with clearly outlined borders and elastic properties data.
