Surface waves are easy to record and loaded with


information about the subsurface. With SeisImager/SW,
data processing is simple, putting the answers you seek
at your fingertips.
Collect a series of active source records to
SeisImager/SW includes both active source and passive calculate a 2D Vs cross-section
source data analysis capability. The higher frequency
data from a sledgehammer source that travels through
shallower depths can be combined with lower frequency
data from microtremors that travel through greater
depths. Combine the results for one high-resolution plot
of S-wave velocity.

Upon launching the software, a wizard walks you through


the data analysis. SeisImager/SW includes default
parameters that are suitable for most cases, but are fully
user-adjustable as needed.

increased signal-to-noise ratio. For 2D active


source data, shoot through a fixed spread, roll via
software or a roll box, or use a land streamer to
collect a series of shots over the length of the
survey line. To supplement active source data,
passive source microtremor data is collected by
manually triggering the seismograph to record 20
records of 32 seconds each.

SeisImager/SW is available for purchase

Borehole data such as P-wave velocities and blow

With Geometrics seismographs, data acquisition is


simple. For 1D active source data, take one or two
off-end shots with a sledgehammer. In noisier
environments, you can also stack multiple shots for
