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.
