The IPGP is non-profit research establishment located in Paris
From August to October 2018, the IPGP (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) carried out an oceanographic mission in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, using 85 ocean bottom seismometers developed specifically for the project.
The mission was to acquire data along 2 seismic refraction profiles
Quick deployment and retrieval was vital, as well as reduced operational costs
The aim of the oceanographic mission was to acquire data along two seismic refraction profiles off the coast of Libera in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, bathymetry, gravity, magneti...
