GEODE Seismic Recorder

The new Geode Seismic Recorder is the next generation of seismic recording system, combining the best of Geometrics' traditional seismic recorders with the flexibility and convenience of a distributed system. It's ideal for refraction or reflection, down-hole or VSP - even tomography surveys.

Place a Geode module out on the line close to the geophones or well head and eliminate long, expensive analog cables. Never hassle with poor connections and bad roll box contacts when doing a reflection survey. And when you are not using the Geode for exploring, use it for monitoring earthquakes, quarry blasts or vibration from heavy equipment.

Geode architecture and Geometrics software lets you build seismic recording systems from 3 to 1000 channels with multiple lines and built-in roll capability. The low power Geodes even have an on-board hardware correlator that can be used for swept sources and MiniSosie (pseudo-random) surveys and compress data before transmission.

The Geode seismic modules house from 3 to 24 channels each, weigh only 8 lbs (3.6 kg) and interconnect using inexpensive digital network cable. The Geode will run all day on a small 12v battery and sleeps when not in use.

For light-duty applications, you can run the Geode from your laptop to view, record, and process your data. The software interfaces to the Geode as a simple high-speed network device, eliminating the need for special drivers and cards.

Accommodates All Surveys:

  • Reflection: suitable for shallow reflection, deep reflection, 2-D and 3-D surveys
  • Refraction: comes with built-in first break picking and analysis
  • Marine surveys: very fast time between shots, real-time single-trace gathers, gun monitoring, noise snapshots, tape swapping for 24/7 operation.
  • Sub-bottom profiling: works with boomers, sparkers, bubble-pulse sources or air guns
  • Vertical Seismic Profiling: separate windows allow display of x, y and z data components
  • 4-D Time Lapse Surveys: weather-proof Geodes can be left in place or redeployed easily for accurate repeat surveys
  • Gun boat monitor: optional wireless interface transmits signature to recording vessel
  • Earthquake monitoring: uses STA/LTAtype algorithm to trigger on incoming data stream, synchronizes with GPS clock
  • Continuous recording: continuous mode plus GPS synchronization for blast and vibration monitoring, general industrial applications
