The department of geological survey at the University of Kansas ordered these short lengths of fire hose to use as a mobile seismic line.  Most seismic lines are a series of geophones planted in the ground and cables used to connect them together to the main “computer”.   The fire hose is used to protect the cabling running between the “shoes” (the black metal pieces) which house the geophones.  This allows them to drag a seismic line instead of planting more phones.
