ABSTRACT

CREWES is proud to have access to an ever expanding collection of commercial grade seismic and survey equipment. Most CREWES staff are eager to take acquisition ideas out of the office and test them in the field. It is also very beneficial for students to witness how the equipment is used to acquire data and some of the challenges that exist with acquisition. In 2014 CREWES has completed the following acquisition projects: a) a video inspection of the original observation well at the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory near Priddis, Alberta; b) an introduction of the seismic recording system and source to the new students of CREWES; c) a 3C 3D survey at a CO2 injection test site near Brooks, Alberta; d) the 2014 GOPH549 undergraduate Field School project at the Castle Mountain Ski Resort in Alberta; e) a broadband 3C survey with VSP and a geophone coupling experiment at the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory site.
