A seismometer having a hydrodynamically efficient shaped body containing a seismic sensor or source, having a propulsion unit located and a control unit for directional control of the propulsion unit for guiding the seismometer to and from an ocean floor. The seismometer can be deployed from a surface ship, helicopter or airplane. The seismometer or surface support vessel contains a navigation unit for directing the control unit to a desired location on the ocean bottom. The apparatus provides a storage device for storing seismic data sensed by the seism...
1. A seismometer comprising:a hydrodynamically efficient shaped body containing a seismic device; a propulsion unit located on said body, said propulsion unit comprising a plurality of fins for propelling said body through an ocean to a designated location on an ocean bottom and digging into said ocean bottom to improve coupling and vector fidelity of said seismic device to the ocean bottom; and a control unit for directional control of said propulsion unit. 2. The apparatus of claim 1 further comprising:a navigation unit for directing the control unit t...
