VertiShear's core technology was researched and developed over many years by Dr. Bob Hardage and his research team at The University of Texas' Bureau of Economic Geology in Austin, TX.

Find below a sampling of different scientific papers and technology briefs that investigate the VertiShear Direct-S mode origins from the source, to the receivers, to the image processing techniques, and summary findings in some case studies.

Currently, Dr. Hardage has been successful applying VertiShear's SV-P mode imaging to 8 different Oil & Gas Basins in North America.
