Quick Reference

A seismic source, used in marine investigations, in which a mixture of gases (e.g. propane and oxygen) is detonated inside a rubber sleeve which expands rapidly to accommodate the products of the explosion, thus generating a shock wave in the surrounding water. The exhaust gases are vented to the surface through a pipe to reduce problems caused by a bubble pulse.
