Presentation of Dr. Tony Scales of M/s Fairfield Industries, USA

Presentation of Dr. Tony Scales of M/s Fairfield Industries, USA organized under the auspices of Association of Petroleum Geologists, India

APG executive body welcomed Dr. Tony Scales  an eminent expert in Seismic acquisition  from M/s Fairfield Industries USA who delivered an  invited lecture on “Technology trends using wireless self recording Systems”  as part of  lecture series at Hotel Madhuban, Dehradun on 30th Nov.,2009 under auspices of APG. Sh. V. K. Bhardwaj felicitated Dr. Tony Scales on behalf of APG.

Dr. Tony Scales gave an insight on Technology trends using wireless self recording Systems. He explained that Fairfield's Autonomous Recording Unit or ARU is a completely self contained field seismic recorder. Everything required to power, sense, amplify, digitize, filter and store seismic P wave reflections is encased in a high impact nylon polymer shell.  There is absolutely no need whatsoever for any external cables to attach sensors or batteries.  The Z Land ARU is utilizing the latest in GPS technology and industry’s cable-free land seismic recorder. The sensitivity of the GPS engine allows the ARU to be completely buried under 1 to 2 inches of soil and still receive signal to maintain timing. This procedure may be called 'stealth mode' of seismic acquisition. 

The lecture was attended by senior officers and members of geoscientific fraternity along with representatives of APG executive body. There was a lively interactive session during the presentation with Dr. Scales. The lecture proceedings were concluded with a vote of thanks by Sh. H. J. Singh Joint Secy. APG.
