Knowledge Capsule: Arrival of EOS Seismic Vibration Truck
The "IVI Envirovibe" will be used to image active faults in the subsurface in key places like Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar. This new – and huge – machine will operate in combination with a set of geophones to detect ground vibrations after they pass through the subsurface. These data will be processed to provide high-resolution seismic reflection profiles that will enable Dr. Judith Hubbard’s team and the EOS Tectonics Group to unravel fault behaviour and fold growth in seismically active and densely populated regions.
