Join us for an insightful webinar that delves into the fascinating world of marine seismic sources, exploring both their historical roots and cutting-edge advancements. We will embark on a journey that begins with a brief historical overview of marine seismic sources, laying the foundation for a deep dive into the exciting recent developments in the field.
Our expert speakers will guide you through the evolution of seismic source technology, highlighting the conventional yet indispensable classical airgun arrays. From there, we will venture into the realm of innovation, introducing novel airguns and their potential to reshape the way we explore the Earth’s subsurface.
But that’s not all – our exploration extends to marine seismic vibrators, a disruptive technology with promising capabilities that with the potential of transforming the field. Discover how these innovative devices are opening new avenues for seismic data acquisition in marine environments.
Whether you’re a seasoned geoscientist or new to the world of marine seismology, this webinar promises to broaden your understanding of seismic source technologies and their vital role in unlocking the secrets of our planet’s subsurface. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to stay at the forefront of marine seismic exploration.
Susanne earned her PhD in Geophysics from the Freie Universität Berlin in 2007 and has since held various technical roles in the Geophysical Industry.
