DALHOUSIE’S INTERNATIONAL VENTURE INTO THE LUNGS OF THE SEA
Last summer, the Port of Halifax welcomed the Maria S. Merian, one of Germany’s most advanced research ships. During expeditions before and after the port call, Canadian Scientists from Dalhousie University joined forces with German scientists from Kiel University and the Baltic Sea Research Institute, as well as researchers from Denmark and Peru, to take a deep dive into the lungs of the Labrador Sea.
GEOSPECTRUM’S NEXT WAVE, REALLY LOW FREQUENCY SEISMIC
Geophysical data collected through seismic surveys is the foundation upon which successful oil and gas exploration projects are built. Seismic surveys provide critical insights into structure, rock properties and guide well placement. Yet current seismic airgun arrays send out loud, sharp pulses that disturb marine life.
