We Are Here To Deliver Innovative Solutions

Our group is composed of internationally recognized experts in noise-based seismic imaging and monitoring.

We have offices in Grenoble (France), Los Angeles (USA) and Hobart (Autralia).

Sisprobe has pioneered and continues to develop the world’s most innovative seismic techniques for noise-based imaging and monitoring. Our passive seismic products and services enable quick and cost-effective surveys.

Sisprobe is the world’s leading provider of subsurface imaging and monitoring using ambient noise surface wave tomography – the most environmentally-friendly method of subsurface seismic imaging. 

Sisprobe has processed passive seismic data for projects and clients worldwide – most recently in France, Netherlands, USA, Canada, and Australia. The method is used in many industries including petroleum, mining, geothermal, geo-engineering, water resources, and geo-hazards.

Sisprobe is a dynamic startup hosted on the campus of University Grenoble-Alpes. Sisprobe’s scientific committee comprises world-renowned researchers at the forefront of developments in the field of passive seismic interferometry.

PhD in Computer Science at University Franche-Comté, Post-doc in seismology at University Grenoble Alpes. Joined Sisprobe in September 2018; specializes in treatment of ambient noise data for monitoring and imaging.
Mathilde Masson
Mathilde MassonResearch Engineer
For this new year 2023, Sisprobe team welcomes a new employee: Mathilde Masson, who just graduated from EOST (Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre) in Strasbourg. Ambient noise surface wave tomography is not new to her since she already carried out an internship at Sisprobe in summer 2021. She then specialized in electromagnetic measurements during her final internship. And last but not least, Sisprobe hopes that her special talent in bakery will be a real asset to propose fresh and new recipies to the team!
