GEOFORCE GROUP SPECIALIZES IN THE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF CUSTOMIZED SUB-BOTTOM PROFILING SYSTEMS.
DESIGNED FOR OPERATION IN THE TOUGHEST OFFSHORE ENVIRONMENTS, our sub-bottom profiling (SBP) systems have been deployed for subsurface geological surveys throughout the world’s oceans and have acquired over 500,000 line-km of high resolution subsurface imaging for government, academia and ocean sector projects.
WHILE EACH OF OUR DEEP-TOW, HIGH RESOLUTION, INTEGRATED DUAL SOURCE SYSTEMS IS CUSTOM MANUFACTURED, ITS CORE CAPABILITIES HAVE PROVEN ESSENTIAL TO SURVEY SUCCESS. These include reliability in high sea states, ease of operation, accuracy of marine subsurface imaging and optimal data resolution.
SUBSEA APPLICATIONS INCLUDE: Site identification for tidal power, offshore wind and energy projects;Geohazard surveys; Geological and geophysical scientific research; Pipeline and cables routing surveys; Extended continental shelf delineation; Seabed dredging, and Characterization of hydrocarbon reservoirs.
GEOFORCE DTS® IS THE ONLY SYSTEM TO HAVE TWO ACOUSTIC SOURCES INTEGRATED IN THE SAME TOW BODY. Depending on operational water depths and survey demands, either mode can be chosen “on the fly”. Deep tow of the system removes surface and vessel motion (heave, pitch and roll), eliminates the surface ghost, and stabilizes source characteristics. Digitization of received signals within the tow body eliminates cable and EM noise interference. The result is an ideal tool for resolving complex structures such as are present in mass transport deposits.
