  • Microseismic monitoring arrays are required to detect the smallest possible event, or to guarantee detection of an event of some minimum size. Diverse geometries and performance metrics have been proposed over the years.
  • We compare predictions of network performance to observations made from an earthquake catalogue. We estimate event spectra using Brune modeling and station noise to predict the magnitude of completeness for a network and compute the location accuracy according to Peters and Crosson     (1972). We
