The first successful lage scale experiments using towed cables with gimballed instruments in seismic data acquisition on land were performed on Spitzbergen during spring 1988. 300 km high quality seismic data were collected and the results are reported in Eiken et al. (1989) and Rygg et al. (1989). Since then a number of tests and surveys have been done in different parts of the world, e.g. West Siberia, Spitzbergen, Antarctica and Canada, and the concept has become well known under the name "Snowstreamer" because of the resemblance to marine techniques and because of the proven performance in snow-covered areas.
