  • Patent number: 3934218
    Abstract: New and improved apparatus and method for seismic exploration on land transports sensing geophones with a flat, lightweight, towing medium or sheet which conforms to the earth's surface. The geophones are mounted on sleds attached to the towing medium by strips or members of resilient material which isolate and decouple the geophone from vibrations and the like induced, sensed, or transmitted by the towing medium. The resilient members enable the geophones and sleds to continually maintain contact with the earth's surface over irregularities in the surface to provide good ground coupling for more accurate seismic exploration results. Plural or multiple towing mediums may be coupled together and towed into place for use in accordance with the desired geophone array to be used.
