OBS Isopod - Ocean Bottom Seismometer

"ISOPOD" is the smallest member of our OBS-family, especially designed for high frequency, medium duration deployments. It is equipped with three 4.5 Hz geophones and our ultra-low-power datalogger "6D6" that perfectly fits active seismic experiments with air-guns. At a total weight of only 95kg it can continuously operate more than 3 month in a water depth of 6000m. For transport, 10 units fit on a standard palette. ISOPOD is equipped with the external memory StiK for extremely fast turn-around times.
