Land Seismic Positioning Overview

Audience

Anyone who wants to learn more about the land seismic positioning process and organization.

Content

This course begins with a look at the importance of geodetic parameters in the execution of a project, together with a focus on the terrain conditions and HSE rules to apply throughout operations.

Scouting, control network and seismic point lay out are all reviewed. This is followed be a presentation of the various surveying methods with consideration of the terrain - satellite positioning (GNSS), conventional surveying (Total station).

The course concludes with a review of the software for processing and QC and for mapping operations.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the importance of geodetic and seismic parameters and their impacts on a land seismic survey
  • Understand the importance of the terrain on surveying operations
  • Name the chronology of the positioning process 
  • Describe the positioning methods and tools used for specific seismic survey projects
