Power supply for seismic reflection systems
The Applied Acoustics power supplies provide variable output energy, up to 2400 J per shot, by means of capacitor discharge. They can be used for a range of seismic sound sources, from single boomer plates up to large sparkers. The charging rate for the CSP-D units is up to 1500 J/s.
Seismic sounds sources need to be used with some form of recording device. Examples include a Geometrics GeoEel multichannel hydrophone streamer, or an Applied Acoustics hydrophone streamer.
See the multichannel seismic system for a comprehensive description. Also, check out the PCMSC Marine Facility (MarFac) web site for more information about field gear.
