CREWES is unique in that it has access to modern commercial grade seismic survey equipment. Every year, this equipment is used to perform real world experiments as well as to demonstrate how acquisition is done. In 2013, CREWES completed the following acquisition projects: a) a GPS survey for new observation well installation at the Priddis test site; b) a small demonstration of the recording system to the new students of CREWES; c) a small test survey to test downhole geophones as well as some fibre optic sensors; d) resurveying the well location for permitting reasons; e) the 2013 GOPH549 undergraduate Field School project within the city of Calgary, Alberta; f) an experiment at the Priddis test site to test the response from the geophones and fibre installed in the well as well as various different sources.
