Paper Abstract

In order to overcome the drawbacks of the pressure sensor in ocean seismic exploration, we try to use the towed vector fiber optic sensor (VFOS) array for the application of ocean seismic exploration. The VFOS with three fiber optic accelerometers outperforms the pressure sensor in dynamic range and quality of the reflected wave. A real VFOS array is developed and tested in Lake Trail. Results illustrate that the data from the VFOS construct more distinct stratum layers than the pressure-sensing fiber optic hydrophone.
