FDSN code X9 (2017-2018) Operated by
  • Sandia National Laboratories
Network name Moment tensor inversion, perforation (Perf shot MTI) Deployment region United States of America
Start year 2017 End year 2018
Short description

For this experiment, we will surround a geothermal well with 18 seismometers to record a single, down-hole perforation shot. We will then attempt to invert the data for the source moment tensor to observe/verify that fracturing has occurred.
