(1) Marine Geophysical Oil Exploration
(or Doodlebugging as it's affectionately known to us)
This is a collection of photos from my time spent in deep-sea and shallow-water marine geophysical exploration.
The intention is to show and record the technology, ships, & personell involved in the early days of seismic oil exploration.
My role (as Junior Observer, then Observer) was the operation, calibration & repair of all the electronic equipment & systems.
