Title (EN) METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ACOUSTIC SOURCE ARRAY PERFORMANCE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'OPTIMISATION DES PERFORMANCES D'UN RÉSEAU DE SOURCE ACOUSTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A technique facilitates obtaining seismic data in a marine environment. An array of acoustic sources is deployed in a marine environment. The array can be utilized for creating acoustic pulses that facilitate the collection of data on subsea structures. The methodology enables optimization of acoustic source array performance to improve the collection of useful data during a seismic survey.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une technique qui facilite l'obtention de données sismiques dans un environnement marin. Un réseau de sources acoustiques est déployé dans un environnement marin. Le réseau peut être utilisé pour créer des impulsions acoustiques qui facilitent la collecte de données sur des structures sous-marines. La méthodologie permet une optimisation des performances du réseau de source acoustique afin d'améliorer le recueille de données utiles durant une prospection sismique.
