The EKSEIS campaign operated by the Alfred Wegener Institute finished last week. The whole campaign has been described in this blog – in German.
For international readers the achievments in a nutshell:
- 407 km of seismic profiles in total, thereof
- 110 km in 6-fold resolution with 125 m shot spacing
- 25 km in 3-fold resolution with 250 m shot spacing.
The remaining distance was covered in single-fold with 750 m shot spacing.
EKSEIS used a well-established 60 channel 1.5 km streamer and a new setup with a vibroseis Buggy “EnviroVibe” on a PE-sled. With this setup data production varied between 20 km/day for 6-fold and 40 km/day for single fold for a decent 9h day of measurements.
