The tenth edition (2011) of the IAGC Safety Manual for Geophysical Operations - produced in two volumes, one for land operations and the other for marine operations - is considered the standard for safety throughout the geophysical industry. The two volumes provide comprehensive safety guidelines for all types of field crew environments.
"Marine Geophysical Operations: An Overview" provides an overview of marine geophysical operations using short videos, animations, and narrative explanations. The CD provides general information regarding marine geophysical operations in terms appropriate for non-technical audiences. Topics such as the acquisition of marine seismic data, description of seismic sources, deployment of equipment, and the different types of seismic surveys are presented on the CD. In addition, the CD includes sections on environmental management, scientific research conducted by Industry related to the sound and marine life issue, and seismic as part of the E&P cycle. The CD will be a valuable tool for educating government agency representatives, the media, the public, scientists, non-technical Industry personnel, and other stakeholders about marine geophysical operations.
