An analysis of selected data from two surveys conducted using the recently completed shear wave accelerated weight-drop seismic source shows that there is good shear wave energy generated by this device. Data are presented from both surface and down-hole geophones deployed at the new well location at the Priddis Geophysical Observatory in October 2013. The first survey used dynamite, an Envirovibe, and the shear wave weight-drop as sources, while the second was a follow up survey to check completion of casing cementing and used just the Envirovibe and the shear wave weight-drop.
