 Media Release

Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), a University of Victoria initiative, successfully deployed a string of three cabled Güralp Maris ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) as part of the first leg of their 2018 ‘Wiring the Abyss’ expedition aboard Canadian Coast Guard Ship the 'John P. Tully'.

The deployment formed part of a two week project to install and improve instrumentation on the offshore cabled observing networks at Barkley Canyon, Cascadia Basin, Endeavour and Clayoquot Slope in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The Güralp OBS were deployed at Endeavour, the northern segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, a divergent boundary between the Pacific and Juan de Fuca tectonic plates. The instruments were positioned at a depth of approximately 2200 m adjacent to hydrothermal vents that have formed along the ridge, and were lifted into place using the Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility’s remotely operated vehicle for ocean science—ROPOS.

One of benefits of the Güralp Maris instrument for this type of deployment is the unique capability of the sensor to operate at any angle. This functionality allows for greater flexibility when installing the instruments in environments where precise alignment and levelling present more of a challenge.

During the deployment of the string, which took place on the 29th June and was streamed live via the ONC website, Güralp engineers were able to watch the installation as it happened, and provide advice to the scientific team on board the expedition vessel, led by ONC staff scientist, Dr. Martin Heesemann. The process of siting, connecting and testing the three seismometers and an interface unit took around five hours to complete. The data from the network will be publicly available via the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) from August.

Martin Heesemann, Staff Scientist at Ocean Networks Canada commented:

“Ocean Networks Canada’s (ONC) real-time network spans all of the dynamic and rugged tectonic regimes off Canada’s west coast capable of generating megathrust earthquakes, including the mid-ocean ridge at Endeavour, fracture zone and subduction zones at Barkley Canyon and Clayoquot Slope. Güralp has been providing world-leading technology and expertise to ONC since we began “Wiring the Abyss” in 2009.”

The incredible live footage of the installation was watched by Giorgio Mangano, Head of Ocean Systems at Güralp:

“Being able to watch the live installation video from the ROV and having direct communication with the ONC's team onboard the ship, it allowed us to provide some advice about the placement of the sensors and to help the scientists to fix simple issues during the process. Having seen how rocky and uneven the area was, we are glad to have developed the Maris, a broadband seismometer able to work at any angle without the need of gimbals. Where possible, the form factor of this sensor helps to easily bury it into the soft sediments, for best noise performances”.

A few days prior to this deployment a single, autonomous Maris seismometer was deployed, and will record activity over the period of a year before retrieval. The addition of this three-seismometer string - plus a single autonomous seismometer - will provide a dense network of instrumentation at this spreading mid-ocean ridge to help us better understand large plate scale seismic activity.

 Media Release

In 2017, Güralp employees were proud to present funds they had raised to Fir Tree Lodge, one of two nearby residential homes, run by Charity SeeAbility that provides support for people living with multiple disabilities and sight loss. Following the presentation, our staff were so moved and inspired by the residents of Fir Tree House that it was agreed that fundraising efforts in the lead up to Christmas 2017 should again be for SeeAbility.

We are pleased to say that our generous employees exceeded their earlier record and raised an impressive £505, a figure that was further boosted by the company, to bring the total to £750.

Earlier this year, a small group of Güralp staff visited Heather House, the second of the local residential homes run by SeeAbility, to meet the residents and staff and to present the cheque. Heather House specialises in providing support for young adults with Batten disease.

Batten disease is a group of related disorders affecting cells in the brain that causes a progressing loss of physical and mental abilities. Usually beginning in childhood, the disease stops the child from progressing in their development and they gradually lose the ability to walk, talk, sit and respond to surroundings. This deterioration occurs over many years and often leads to blindness and seizures.*

The individuals cared for at Heather House are provided with all round support and the opportunity to participate in activities such as cookery, arts and crafts, music sessions and physiotherapy.

The funds raised by Güralp will be put towards payment for one of ten new full-travel ceiling-mounted hoists that allow residents to get in and out of their beds and wheelchairs more easily.

The cheque was presented following a short tour of the amazing facilities at the home. Receiving the cheque at Heather House are Tisha Rolfe and Ivy Button.

Minimus seismic digitiser: Increased functionality and a new eight channel version

Following the success of the Minimus launch in 2016, Güralp, the leading global provider of force-feedback seismic monitoring instrumentation, has extended its capabilities with a host of additional features and is launching an eight channel version for multi-instrument stations at the AGU 2017 Fall Meeting.

Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) and Structural Health monitoring capabilities

The Minimus met an enthusiastic response following its launch in 2016 and since then, significant energy has been invested in further developing the digitisers’ capabilities. New out of the box features include the incorporation of industry standard triggering algorithms for EEW (STA/LTA), multi-instrument voting to mitigate false positive alerts and the Minimus is now Common Alert Protocol (CAP) for automated emergency warning. These new features make the Minimus particularly attractive for EEW and structural health monitoring applications.

New Minimus+ with eight primary digitisation channels

For increased convenience for multi-instrument stations, Güralp are also releasing a larger capacity version, the Minimus+, which offers eight primary digitisation channels. The Minimus+ can accommodate two triaxial instruments (seismometers and/or accelerometers) plus a Radian posthole or borehole and two auxiliary inputs, e.g. for infrasound and/or meteorological feeds. The Minimus+ offers all the features associated with the four channel digitiser including:

  • Advanced software communications for quick and easy instrument and data management
  • Ultra-low-latency mode for EEW - when used with GDI protocol, transmission can be achieved in 40 ms
  • GüVü Bluetooth Android App for installation integrity checking (available for both Android and iOS devices)
  • Hot-swappable data storage and dual-redundant microSD cards
  • Select from GNSS (GPS, GLONASS or BeiDou) or PTP (Precision Time Protocol) timing sources

Philip Hill, Engineering Director at Güralp discusses the developements:

"A consequence of new mobile computing technology has enabled us to miniaturise the digitiser to make the world's most portable, high performance solution. When we launched the Minimus in 2016, it reflected a step change in terms of digitiser design and user experience and, with these latest developments and the launch of the eight channel Minimus+, we have been able to release even more of that potential.”

If you are attending AGU - come and see us on booth 1853 where you can see the Minimus+ up close. Alternatively you can read more on the Minimus page.

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 a titanium housing; and a hydrophone (2Hz–30KHz) attached to the fourth channel.

The pygmy blue whale calls were recorded on several OBSs on both the broadband seismometers and the hydrophones during a marine seismic survey in 2014-15 that utilised an airgun array as a seismic source. You can listen to an extract of whale calls here, as recorded on the seismometer:



 

It is well established that pygmy blue whales migrate along the Western Australia coast from feeding grounds in the Southern Ocean to breeding grounds in the tropical Indian Ocean although the width of the migration corridor is uncertain. It was believed the whales tend to stay mainly at the edge of the continental shelf during their journey, approaching the coast only in the southern migration leg in November–December at Geographe Bay, Western Australia.

In a project at Curtin University led by Prof Alexander Gavrilov with Garrick Paskos and Alexey Goncharov of Geoscience Australia, hydrophone data from fourteen of the Australian OBSs were processed using CHORUS software, which incorporates an automatic pygmy blue whale sound detector. The results clearly demonstrate that the whales tend to stay 300 to 400 km from the coast, and they rarely move inshore.

The recording of pygmy blue whale calls in the background of active marine survey noise further strengthens the case for using the OBS as a powerful environment monitoring and protection capability. Recording of airgun signals by the OBS allows estimating Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) and Sound Exposure Levels (SEL) to very large offsets exceeding 200 km in some cases. These values could be benchmarked against those predicted by seismic source modelling, and against marine mammals’ injury criteria. Australian OBS data from all new surveys could be made open file to allow further analysis to reduce speculation about the impact of seismic surveys’ noise on marine life.

Güralp employees raise £470 for SeeAbility, a charity that supports people with sight loss and multiple disabilities.SeeAbility donation

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 facilities at the home, which provides specialist accommodation and support for ten residents. Receiving the cheque is Fir Tree Lodge resident Paul, surrounded by a number of his housemates.

The funds raised have been used to purchase equipment such as a specialist bowling set, giant table top games including scented bingo and an ultraviolet light and neon paints for discos. To find out more about the work of SeeAbility, you can visit their website www.seeability.org.
