The Ship Pictured
to the left is a very special ship. It is a Catamaran that is used
for special Geophysical Oceanic Scientific Investigations. I was asked
to help test and put to "sea trials" a new system that will help JAMSTEC
perform subsurface seismic reflection surveys to determine the location
of off shore fault zones near and around the Japanese Islands.
During the 24 hour test, the Kayio(Pictured left) shot 453 seismic records, shooting every 90 seconds. This over an approximate 50 Nautical Mile traverse. The data looked very good.
