This paper describes a highly portable geophone, designed for large-scale refraction surveying, which uses a novel suspension system to obtain a natural frequency of about 1.85 c/s. The nominal output is 0.7 volts/cm/second into a 500 ohm load, the damping then being 0.7 of critical. Some typical recorded arrivals obtained with this geophone are illustrated.
