Stamp-Size Gravity Meter Could Have Big Impact On Oil Exploration A silicon MEMS device that accurately measures gravity could make geophysical surveys easier, cheaper, and safer 30 March 2016 | Prachi Patel To find buried oil reserves, surveyors have for decades used gravity meters, or gravimeters, along with other instruments. Gravimeters are hypersensitive versions of accelerometers: They measure extremely tiny changes in the acceleration due to gravity. These nanoscale changes can happen because of the presence of subterranean geological features like oil wells. The best gravimeters in use today are the size of a shopping basket, weigh a few kilograms, [ READ MORE ]
