A26 RECENT ADVANCES IN POINT RECEIVER TECHNOLOGY – ARE FIELD ARRAYS A REQUIREMENT ANY LONGER? Summary: 1 The recent introduction of full wavefield (i.e. multicomponent) point receiver technology has rekindled an ongoing debate amongst geophysicists as to the suitability of point receivers for use in the acquisition of standard compressional (P-wave) seismic data. Conventional wisdom tells most geophysicists that for a variety of reasons P-wave data should be acquired using arrays of receivers (and sources). While the spatial dimensions and number of elements deployed varies greatly throughout the world it is nonetheless common practice to employ some form of array.
