Media Release Güralp Liber Ocean Bottom Seismometers record migration calls of pygmy blue whales off the coast of Australia and pave way for environmentally responsible exploration. A fleet of Güralp Liber Ocean Bottom Seismometers (OBS) maintained by Geoscience Australia, funded through AuScope and managed by ANSIR - Research Facilities for Earth Sounding, have recorded the calls of pygmy blue whales as they migrate along the Western Australia coast. As well as demonstrating that the whales stay further from the coast than previously thought, the research has identified an opportunity to test seismic source modelling to ensure environmentally responsible exploration. The Australian Liber OBS that were deployed are housed in titanium and can remain on the seafloor continuously recording for up to 12 months. They can be commanded to return to the surface using an acoustic communication link. Each OBS incorporates a Güralp 6T-OBS 3-component broadband (0.0167 Hz–100 Hz) seismometer, with…

Güralp employees, (left to right) Wayne Noon, Sue Hearne, Garry Gromowski-Cook and Debra Barber, were delighted to present a local residential home run by charity SeeAbility, with a cheque for £470.00. The money was raised over the Christmas period through an alternative Christmas card programme, where employees donated funds instead of buying cards for their colleagues. This initiative raised an impressive £324 which was then topped up with £145 by the company. Fir Tree Lodge, based just a mile from Güralp’s headquarters in Aldermaston, is one of a number of residential homes throughout the South of England run by SeeAbility.  The home provides support for adults with a range of disabilities and complex needs, specialising in supporting and assisting people with sight loss. The cheque was presented following a short tour of the amazing…
