GeoSpectrum’s high-speed hydrophone calibrator can be equipped to measure voltage sensitivity and capacitance as a function of temperature, shallow depths and signal amplitude. Distortion can be measured at any combination of temperature, depth, and signal amplitude. The graphs show the variation in performance of the M2 hydrophone as a function of temperature and depth.
