Dictionary:Vertical seismic profiling
Sometimes the surface sources are moved about the area as well as the geophone depth being changed. Where the source point is an appreciable horizontal distance from the well head, the result is an offset VSP; this provides a way to look to the side of the borehole.
For an azimuthal VSP sources are offset in different directions. In a walkaway VSP a surface source moves while the geophone in the borehole remains stationary; this provides another way to look to the side of the borehole. In a reversed VSP the source is in the borehole and geophones are on the surface.
