Microseismic measurement is essential in the field of geophysics, but it is often subject to various disturbances, commonly referred to as "noise". These disturbances are linked to the choice of sensors, and to legal and illegal transmitters. They can alter the quality of measurements, thus affecting the interpretation of seismic data. STANEO, as an expert in microseismic measurement, is committed to controlling these disturbances to guarantee the accuracy and reliability of the data collected.

Micro-seismic disturbances

The presence of noise, or disturbances, in the microseismic signal can greatly affect the quality of the measurement. STANEO, aware of these challenges, strives to optimize every step of the measurement process to minimize the impact of these disturbances.

The importance of sensors and cables

A judicious choice of sensors and cables is crucial to reducing noise. Sensors must be carefully selected and coupled to the ground, while cables, especially long ones, must be chosen and designed to minimize common-mode disturbance.

The challenges of microseismic cabinets

Power systems within microseismic enclosures can also introduce noise. Proper electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) management is crucial to solving these problems.

The impact of issuers on measurement

Legal transmitters such as GSM and WiFi antennas, as well as other power systems and communications equipment, can influence seismic signals. STANEO takes great care in selecting, designing and positioning each component to preserve signal integrity.

STANEO's commitment to quality 

STANEO is committed to providing measurements of the highest metrological quality, qualifying and quantifying noise levels and alerting users to detected or impending faults.
