First French OBS deployed
11 October 2012
Last night the first French OBS was launched. First deployments are special, so the event was well attended despite the late hour. Unfortunately, night deployments are not easy to capture...
...so here the same thing again in bright daylight. French OBS #2 started its voyage to the ocean bottom this morning. Seven more will follow, interleaved with 25 German OBS. The advantage of the French model is that it records seismic waves down to lower frequencies.
