Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
As part of the 175th anniversary of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), staff of the Booth Street Complex in Ottawa participated in the Doors Open 2017 event. The near surface geophysics group showcased reflection seismology by displaying examples using different seismic sources. This poster compares the Minivib source with a smaller more portable source called Microvibe. The IVI Minivib 1 is a 9 ton vehicle with a vibrating mass of 140kg. The Microvibe's total weight is 180 kg. Despite the smaller size and decreased weight, the new Microvibe is capable of creating subsurface images with more detail.
