Geophone orientation, location, and polarity checking for 3-C seismic surveys

Henry C. Bland and Robert R. Stewart

ABSTRACT

A method to compute geophone orientation and location is introduced. This method analyses the horizontal components of 3-C geophones and estimates the azimuth of the source with respect to the geophone. Based on these azimuths for several shots, a solution for the true geophone orientation and location is determined.
