CREWES continues to be one of the few research consortiums that has access to industry acquisition equipment. CREWES also has the collective knowledge to use this equipment to design and carry out acquisition experiments at any time of year. This provides the opportunity to take ideas formed in the office to the field. These experiences are also used to educate staff and students on the procedures and realities of data acquisition.
Acquisition that was carried out by CREWES in 2017 include: a) a multi receiver 3D 3C seismic survey at FRS with vibe and thumper sources in May; b) GPS experiments at Priddis in June; c) another multi receiver 3D 3C seismic survey at FRS with just the vibe as a source in July; d) the geophysics undergraduate field school in August; e) a final multi receiver 3D 3C seismic survey at the FRS in October.
