Svein Vaage Broadband Air Gun Study

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 730)


Marine seismic exploration is a method for collecting geophysical data that offer an opportunity for a detailed look at the geological structure beneath the seabed. The product of a seismic survey can be either a two-dimensional or a three-dimensional image, which can then be used to identify potential areas for oil and gas exploration and production. Seismic imaging is analogous to the ultrasound technology that is commonly used in the medical profession for imaging the human body.
