Workshop 16

Marine Vibrators: Good, good, good – Good vibrations?

Monday 10 June 2024 | 



  • Peter Hanssen (Equinor)
  • Thomas Elboth (Shearwater)
  • Rune Tenghamn (Akitemos Solution)
  • Enrico Zamboni (TotalEnergies)


In recent years, several projects have developed towed marine vibrators (MV) to meet increased environmental requirements and to secure a license to operate. This first workshop on MVs will look at the history of seismic sources, their technical challenges, and future applications. Recent results from offshore tests and environmental studies will be presented and we will discuss new acquisition designs, signal, and pre-processing methods.


Participant Profile

Geophysicists, who are interested in seismic acquisition, including instrumentation, signal processing, automation, low frequencies, and efficiency. Engineers who want to learn about different approaches to constructing an offshore vibratory source. Environmentalists, regulators, and managers who want to learn about reduced HSE, impact on fauna, and source parameters beyond SPL and SEL.
