- Real-Time Induced Seismicity Forecasting and Risk Management Utilizing Research-grade Seismic Catalogs | Presentation/PosterPractical management of induced seismicity risk and effective mitigation approaches are crucial to oil and gas operations.
- Installation Techniques & Network Performance: Impact of Sensor Installation Techniques on Seismic Network Performance | Presentation/PosterThe magnitude of completeness (Mc) of a seismic network is determined by a number of factors including station density, self-noise and passband of the sensor used, ambient noise environment and sensor installation method and depth.
- SEISMIC NETWORK PERFORMANCE ESTIMATION: Comparing Predictions to Observation from an Earthquake Catalogue | Presentation/PosterWe 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.
- Sources of Latency & Associated Design Tradeoffs Final (2) | Presentation/PosterGeoScience BC identified a requirement to better understand the effects of hydraulic fracturing in the Horn River Basin. The dissemination of precise and accurate geotechnical information to the public is the foundation of their work.
- Using Real-time Microseismic Array Performance Prediction to Construct Optimal Arrays | Presentation/PosterMicroseismic 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.
- Temporary Broadband Seismic Station Deployments | Presentation/PosterTruly portable broadband (BB) seismic instrumentation becomes viable only when the superiority of direct burial and purpose-built instrumentation is embraced.
- Predictions of Earthquake Ground Motions in Western AB | Presentation/PosterWe develop a suite of ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) for earthquakes in western Alberta, where seismic hazard contributions from induced events is of particular interest.
- Potential Applications of an Integrated Seismic, Tilt & Temperature Instrument | Presentation/PosterMass position represents a quasi-static acceleration applied to the inertial mass of a seismometer to keep it balanced at its operating point. This acceleration changes with tilt (due to gravity) and temperature (due to the temperature coefficient of the springs).
- Performance Expectations for the Transportable Array in Alaska Ackerley (SSA 2014) | Presentation/PosterThe EarthScope transportable array is planned to begin deployment in Alaska in 2014. Detection of more small events will allow for better estimation of rates of seismicity and earthquake hazard.
- New Temp Array, IRIS PASSCAL Sweetwater, TX | Presentation/PosterTo establish a temporary mixed phase broadband seismic array with publically open and available data that will facilitate new research. This was a 6 week study that began on March 11, 2014.
