HPC simulation, imaging and inversion of passive seismology data

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

Passive seismology is the science of real-time recording and analysis of natural seismicity (e.g. earthquakes or ambient noise) or induced seismicity (e.g. due to fluid injection) with surface or borehole sensor arrays. Passive seismic data can be useful to: (1) image/monitor subsurface fluid flow, pressure/stress fronts, rock fracturing, and fault excitation; (2) estimate the insitumore…
