3D Seismic field terminology

Orthogonal 3D Geometry with terminology labels

 

Source Line

A line that has some type of energy release (Dynamite/Vibroseis/Weight drop/Airgun) at specified intervals within a seismic program.

Receiver Line

A line that has sensors (Geophone/Hydrophone) laid out at specified intervals within a seismic program.

Source Line Interval

The distance between 2 adjacent source lines.

Receiver Line Interval

The distance between 2 adjacent receiver lines.

Source Interval

The distance between adjacent source points along a source line.

Receiver Interval

The distance between each group of receivers (or single sensors) along a receiver line.

In-line Direction

The direction parallel to the receiver lines.

Cross-Line Direction

The direction perpendicular to the receiver lines.

 

 3D Seismic Recording Patch Definition

 

Recording Patch

All stations (receiver points) that are actively recording for a given shot point. 

Typically defined by the: (# of receiver lines) X (# of receivers per line).

Swath / Salvo

All the shot points between adjacent receiver lines.
