Open Data Service


The Ocean Bottom Instrumentation Consortium aims to provide the academic and commercial communities with access to multi-sensor, versatile seabed instruments to enable sub-surface geophysical imaging at high vertical and lateral resolution. We have 50 seabed platforms with hydrophones and 3-component short period geophones; 14 instruments can be deployed as electric field receivers for active EM experiments; 9 instruments can be deployed with differential pressure gauges for long-term earthquake studies. Broadband seismic receivers are currently under development. NERC-funded projects are carried out under Pay as You Go terms as part of the Geophysical Equipment Facility; these costs appear on grant proposals but may be outside of the £1.2M cap on standard grants.
