Seismic Acquisition, Seismic acquisition is a geophysical prospecting method based on the principle that sound waves travel through the earth depending on the properties of the rock A seismic wave is initiated by generating an energy wave using seismic vibrators at a known point (the shot point); records are made of the travel times and shape of the seismic waves ,Seismic wave, A seismic wave is a vibration generated by an earthquake, explosion, or similar energetic source and propagated within Earth or along its surface Earthquakes generate four principal types of elastic waves; two, known as body waves, travel within Earth, whereas the other two, called surface waves, travel along its surface Seismographs record the amplitude and frequency of seismic waves and ,Seismic Prospecting | Physics Forums, Feb 22, 2012· Seismic Prospecting Thread starter lcp1992; Start date Feb 21, 2012; Feb 21, 2012 #1 lcp1992 12 0 ,THE USE OF SEISMIC SHEAR WAVES AND COMPRESSIONAL WAVES ,, Abstract From a great variety of in situ shear wave experiments, ie, reflection, refraction and borehole surveys in the shallow sediments of the north German plains, several specific properties h,Seismic Method, In seismic surveys, seismic waves radiate outward from a sound source at the surface, which can be an explosive charge or a mechanical impact The refraction technique uses a long array of geophones to sense refracted waves, and the reflection technique uses a condensed array near the source to sense reflected waves ( Figure 410 ).
