A cable designed to be laid or dragged on the sea floor that contains receivers for several stations. Four-component (4-C) receivers constitute three orthogonal geophones and a hydrophone. OBC are sometimes dragged into position, sometimes dropped so that they drape over any ocean-floor topography.
