EMpulse Geophysics Ltd.


Our SFERIC II receiver is used to record naturally occurring transient electromagnetic energy for estimation of the impedance tensor and/or magnetic field tipper over the bandwidth 1 Hz to 32 kHz. Large transient amplitude coupled with time localized recording ensures the highest possible SNR in the raw data. Essentially unbiased estimation of the impedance tensor and magnetic field tipper is obtained with EMpulse Geophysics’ proprietary Adaptive Polarization Stacking (APS) algorithm.
