- Paper from R. Ghose on the sevenfold seismic Icone
Commissioned by and following the idea and specifications of Dr. Ranajit Ghose of TU Delft, A.P. van den Berg developed a sevenfold seismic cone. The technology, the Icone, the digital data acquisition system Icontrol and the seismic click-on modules which can be clicked on the Icone with one simple movement (plug & play concept) were already available at A.P. van den Berg. In cooperation with dr. Ranaijt Ghose the seismic system was extended to seven seismic modules with a distance of 25 centimeters between the receivers. The engineers of A.P. van den Berg also developed special software, specifically for this array of seven seismic modules, for recording, storing and processing the data. Read the full paper here.
