The vast majority of land seismic data has been recorded using systems where the sensors are connected to the recording truck by cables. This has allowed the quality of the recording system, and the data it collected, to be assessed in real-time. The emergence of nodal acquisition systems (Dean et al., 2018), in particular ‘blind’ systems where the data is not recovered until the node has been collected and downloaded, however, has refocused attention on just what level of QC is required.
