Geophysical Survey Scheduled for Campus This Week

Trucks being used to conduct a geophysical survey as part of oil and gas development throughout Greeley by local company Mineral Resources Inc. are scheduled to work along roadways on and near campus this week.

Using a baseplate that's placed in contact with the ground, the trucks, owned and operated by Geokinetics, will generate vibrations that are described as similar to road construction by a roller or loaded forklift.

The acoustic waves created by the vibrations will reflect off geologic layers and the data they generate will be captured by sensors inside yellow boxes placed along roadways.

Employees of Geokinetics will be on campus several times during the month-long survey to download data from the sensors.
