The Geovista DPS (Downhole P&S) sonde, allows simultaneous measurement of P & S wave velocities within the borehole environment. Commonly used for Geotechnical evaluation, the sonde is placed statically at different depths within the borehole and acoustic data acquired in different modes allow the determination of these velocities.
This is a cost effective way to determine P & S downhole – without the need for a surface seismic source for important geotechnical evaluations.
The data acquired by the system is recorded in the industry standard of SEG2 file format.
Geovista also provides a software interpretation package to determine the P & S velocities.
