With a recent modification, Geometrics' Geode system is capable of monitoring and recording seismic data on 200 channels continuously 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Shell International Exploration and Production, Inc. has purchased and accepted such a system and has been using it to simultaneously monitor and record 192 channels at a 0.25 msec sampling interval. Geometrics' Multiple Geode Operating Software (MGOS) controller software is used to manage robotic tape libraries with sufficient throughput and capacity to accommodate the 185.5 megabytes per minute of data generated by the experiment.
The Geometrics Geode seismic recording system is composed of 24-bit 24-channel modules connected via a high-speed long-distance Ethernet network. Wide bandwidth and high dynamic range make the Geode suitable for reflection, tomography, VSP, refraction, crosshole or downhole surveys.
