Full-waveform Based Microseismic Event Detection and Signal Enhancement: The Subspace Approach
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2013)
Microseismic monitoring has proven to be an invaluable tool for optimizing hydraulic fracturing stimulations and monitoring reservoir changes. The signal to noise ratio (SNR) of the recorded microseismic data varies ...
Focal Mechanism Determination of Induced Microearthquakes in an Oil Field Using Full Waveforms from Shallow and Deep Seismic Networks
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2011-05-09)
A new, high frequency, full waveform matching method is used to study the focal mechanisms of small, local earthquakes induced in an oil field, which are monitored by a sparse near-surface network and a deep borehole ...
Focal Mechanism Determination Using High Frequency Waveform Matching and Its Application to Small Magnitude Induced Earthquakes
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2010)
We present a new method using high frequency full waveform information to determine the focal mechanisms of small, local earthquakes monitored by a sparse surface network. During the waveform inversion, we maximize both ...
