Sparker systems are seismic reflection profiling equipment that operate in the 400 to 1200 Hz region. They are a great companion for the chirp channels in our HD SBP system. Running a sparker in parallel with higher frequency chirp channels enables multi-frequency survey affording both high resolution and deep penetration.
Sparkers are well suited for off-the-continental-shelf operations, but they can also be used in shallow coastal waters when sub-bottom penetration requirements can not be met with higher frequency systems.
Meridata offers a wide range of sparker-based sub-bottom profiling solutions.
Our systems can be customized to support different energy levels, sparker electrode configurations and hydrophone streamer configurations to match the depth range requirements. These optimized system configurations are always well tuned for the performance needed.
Meridata supplies fully integrated systems for sparker sub-bottom profiling survey. A typical system includes:
