Burt's Tracking System

Postby Burts_Brother » Fri Feb 04, 2005 10:51 am

I have a question about what Burt uses to track the graboids. In Tremors 3 and in the series he said he uses geophones. But in the first Tremors Rhonda said she uses seismographs. Now are seismographs and geophones a whole system or two different system? I can't remember if Rhonda said something about geophones in the first movie or not.

The seismograph recording vibrations in a local area. By looking at different charts, Rhonda realized that something was movign around the valey and there was more than one something.

I would imagine the geophone uses a different method: recording vibrations, uploading that to a computer, then the data is analyzed to triangulate positions. I'm guessing the "phone" part refers to the radio communications between stationary sensors
