A hammer striking a steel plate is used as a seismic source for shallow refraction or reflection measurements. The hammer incorporates a switch that starts a timer when the hammer strikes. Alternatively, closure can be produced by the hammer touching the plate to complete an electrical circuit. In some systems the timer is stopped when energy received by a geophone reaches some threshold value.
