Canada's New Observatory Uses 'Seafloor GPS'

A major new seabed observatory that will provide critical information about earthquake and tsunami hazards is to be deployed offshore Vancouver, Canada, using long endurance acoustic sensing technology supplied by Sonardyne International Ltd.The new Northern Cascadia Subduction Zone Observatory (NCSZO) will use a “seafloor GPS” network to monitor long-term movements of the subducting Juan de Fuca plate and overriding North American tectonic plate. Data gathered by the new observatory will play a critical role in informing assessments of earthquake and tsunami risk to the large populations

Enhanced Seismic Monitoring at Johan Sverdrup

seismic data for Norwegian energy firm Equinor at the giant Johan Sverdrup oil field in the North Sea, about 87 miles west of Stavanger, Norway.From first production at the development, Equinor plans to use seafloor based seismic cable permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM) technology from Sonardyne International Ltd. to observe what is happening in the reservoir over time to help maximize recovery rates.While PRM technologies increase the amount and quality of data that operators have about their reservoirs, processing it can sometimes be complicated by changing environmental conditions, such as water
