Land Seismic Surveyor Induction

Audience

Surveying technicians and new hires assigned to field land surveying.

Content

This course starts with a HSE induction, and an introduction to the principles of seismic acquisition.

A field assignment of 3 weeks is then undertaken by the participants. The role and duties of the surveyor on a seismic crew are investigated.

This is followed by a theoretical introduction to the theory of Geodesy and Satellite positioning (GNSS) principles. The surveying equipment is presented and practical training is undertaken for seismic lines stake out. Survey data processing including Quality controls with the appropriate software is explored.

This course finishes with data management, and an introduction to mapping and geoprocessing.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the seismic operations and the role of the surveyor
  • Gain the technical background in seismic acquisition, geodesy and GNSS positioning
  • Competently perform the conventional method of processing and QC

50-day

Number of Participants

6 - 12

Prerequisites

University degree in Surveying.
