Mineral Resources Inc. and Geokinetics will conduct a geophysical survey throughout Greeley as part of oil and gas development in the area. In the coming days, they will place sensors (similar to those pictured here) in numerous campus locations to record data from trucks that will perform "acoustic wave" tests on city streets near the university.
The devices will be arranged in two-foot-diameter circles. In general, they will be placed next to trees, fences, signs and other locations to avoid interfering with pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Employees of Geokinetics will be on campus several times during the month-long survey to download data from the sensors.
