S-Boom triple plate boomer now available for rental!

12 December 2013

The Applied acoustics S-Boom has become renowned as the leading source for Ultra High Resolution marine seismic surveys. Already recognised for producing high resolution seabed profiles, the fusion of these three transducers delivers a source level high enough to significantly increase sub-bottom penetration while maintaining a vertical resolution of better than 0.25 metres.

Innovation within the energy source sees the S-Boom capable of operating at a maximum energy output of 1000 Joules per pulse, and firing at 3 pulses per second. At this setting, the S-Boom has achieved penetration results of over 200ms through sand and limestone whilst delivering the high resolution records expected of boomer systems.

The S-Boom is powered by a CSP- S1250 power supply and can be supplied with a Geometrics MicroEel seismic streamer, formulating a perfect data acquisition package suitable for construction geological surveys including shallow gas mitigation.

The polarity of the Suns magnetic field is about to reverse!

2 August 2013

The Sun is about to reach the midpoint between Solar Maximums where the magnetic field changes polarity. This event occurs approximately every eleven years and has been observed by Stanford’s Wilcox Solar Observatory 3 times. Solar activity (sun spots and solar flares) is not likely to change during this transition but it is worth taking note of this grand event. For more information please see

Geomatrix wins the bi-annual Sales Excellence award

19 June 2013

Geomatrix is pleased to receive the bi-annual Sales Excellence award from Geometrics Inc for continuing high sales of the G-882 marine magnetometer. Geomatrix total sales of this excellent product for marine search and mapping now totals some 121 units with 43 units sold in the last 2 years alone, and yet more systems on order with the manufacturer.

Geomatrix Director Chris Leech says this shows what an excellent design the G-882 magnetometer is, reliable and with superb resolution and high sampling rates which combine to make an ideal high resolution magnetic mapping tool for the underwater environment, either in standalone mode, or combined in arrays for wide swath mapping.
