Knowledge Capsule: Arrival of EOS Seismic Vibration Truck

05 Nov 2013

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.
