BGR-adapter for borehole exploration equipment

For the geophysical (seismic) exploration of boreholes, the sensors have to be guided along the borehole. Normally, the equipment is mounted on a support that fits into a singular borehole diameter only. The cost-efficient planning of the drilling campaign (T43) made it necessary to restrict the number of boreholes. Hence, there was the need to adapt from diameter 86 mm to 131 mm while working in situ.

The prototype was tested by BGR during the investigations of HE task T43. It has been in use for other seismic investigations since.
