Post by saramaak »

What subsurface horizon or 'layer' do mainstream broadband Vibroseis trucks (active seismic source) reach vertically below?

Look at the paper
"Comparison of explosive and vibroseis source energy penetration during COCORP deep seismic reflection profiling in the Williston Basin"
Geophysics 61(1):211-221.
their conclusion was 20 to 30 km, but that was with pretty big effort (8 vibs and 30 sec sweep length)
