AbstractA new landstreamer system has been developed that provides high resolution imaging from near surface to medium depths. The system is comprised of a combination three-component array to acquire SH data for near surface and a single component array to acquire typical P-wave data at depth. The first application of the system is being carried out for a groundwater mapping project where detailed knowledge of the near surface geological complexity is desired. The landstreamer is also suitable for engineering applications and in difficult to survey urban environments.
