Figure 2 – Vertical wave test data acquired with the geometry exhibited on figure 1. (a)
Downhole wavelets generated by small 10-ounce (280 grams) directional charges
detonated in shallow 10-foot (three-meter) shot holes and recorded at depth
intervals of 500 feet (150 meters). (b) Downgoing wavelets produced by a
40,000-pound vibrator and recorded at depth intervals of 50 feet (15 meters).
