EOS Knowledge Capsule: Seismic Vibration Truck

EOS Knowledge Capsule: Seismic Vibration Truck

The "IVI Envirovibe" is to be used to creates images of 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. Collected data will be processed to provide high-resolution seismic reflection profiles that will enable Assistant Professor Judith Hubbard’s team and the EOS Tectonics Group to unravel fault behaviour and fold growth in seismically active and densely populated regions.
