EDE: Telluric recording system


Project leader: Prof. Dr. Michael Becken, Dr. Jörg Schmalzl
Project staff: Bernd Böhmer, Heinz Knese, Stefan Ueding
Funding: in-house
Period: since 2011


Objectives:

Electromagnetic surveying in controlled and natural source applications can benefit from dense arrays of electric field recordings combined with more sparsely distributed five-component (electric and magnetic) stations. To facilitate such a surveying strategy, we have built a low-cost, low-power and easy-to-setup two-component data logger.
