For hammer work, you use sample rates on the order of 100 microseconds
(10,000 sample/sec). The veolcities might run something like this:
Soil 1000-2000 ft/sec (300-600 m/s)
clays, weathered rock 2000-5000 ft/sec (600-1500 m/s)
groundwater 5000 ft/sec (1500 m/s)
bedrock 5000-15000 ft/sec (1500-7500 m/s)
So, even though the block diagram is similar, you scale the frequencies
about three orders of magnitude. Modern exploration seismographs can be
seen at my old company http://www.geometrics.com/ Anybody who wants to
look at the solutions in more detail should go to
http://www.geometrics.com/sci.html and download the booklet "Seismic
Refraction Exploration for Engineering Site Investigations"
