Abstract
In this paper we present a new compact design of marine seismometer in the frame of INTMARSIS project. The design pretends to be an alternative to OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometers) in shallow waters (depth < 500m) to be deployed near de coast. In contrast to OBS, a physical connection between the seafloor unit and the surface buoy allows real time data processing, satellite communication and intranet publishing. Even though an umbilical cable seems to be the more obvious alternative, the low energ...
