# How do you acquire seismic data acquisition?

Seismic acquisition requires the use of a seismic source at specified locations for a seismic survey, and the energy that travels within the subsurface as seismic waves generated by the source gets recorded at specified locations on the surface by what is known as receivers (geophones or hydrophones).

What is the importance of processing in seismic data interpretation?

Seismic data processing Analysis of recorded seismic signals to filter (reduce/eliminate) unwanted components (noise) and create an image of the subsurface to enable geological interpretation, and eventually to obtain an estimate of the distribution of material properties in the subsurface (inversion).

### What do you mean by seismic processing write various steps involve in processing?

Processing steps typically include analysis of velocities and frequencies, static corrections, deconvolution, normal moveout, dip moveout, stacking, and migration, which can be performed before or after stacking.

What does a geophone measure?

A geophone is a device that converts ground movement (velocity) into voltage, which may be recorded at a recording station. The deviation of this measured voltage from the base line is called the seismic response and is analyzed for structure of the earth.

## What is demultiplexing in seismic data processing?

Demultiplexing involves sorting the data into columns of samples — all the time samples in one channel followed by those in the next channels.

What is seismic reflection method?

Seismic Reflection Method. The seismic reflection method uses seismic waves with near-vertical paths to detect impedance contrasts within the crust and upper mantle (Fig. 7). The seismic reflection method provides the highest resolution images of the structure of the crust and Moho.

### What is the difference between a geophone and a seismometer?

Broadband seismometers are high performing instruments rooted in earthquake seismology, whereas geophones are traditionally used in large quantities for active seismic surveys in exploration applications.

What are the types of geophones?

There are three types of common geophones: vertical, horizontal and multi-component. And these can have different frequencies. Typically, we use vertical geophones for refraction and surface wave studies and horizontal geophones for reflection and multi-component for some advanced studies of the ground motion.
