Delivering seismic data from ultra-deep underwater environments

From August to October 2018, the IPGP (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) carried out an oceanographic mission in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, using 85 MicrOBS ocean bottom seismometers developed in partnership between the Ifremer (French Institute for Marine Research) and Sercel Underwater Acoustics.


In this case study, you will learn how our ocean bottom solution succeeded in acquiring seismic data at water depths of between 4,000 to 6,000 metres  :

  • High-quality data acquisition
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Data download by cable
  • Size reduction
