FDSN code XK (2016-2016) Operated by New Mexico Tech
Network name Delineating preferential flow paths from recharge for water planning and management (Recharge_flow) Deployment region United States
Start date June 8, 2016 End date June 12, 2016
Short description

This is a pilot project to test feasibility of identifying seismic tremor associated with discharge into an aquifer. We are proposing to conduct three recharge experiments near Preston, MN. The site includes a sinkhole and spring that are ~100 m apart. Artificial recharge events will be conducted by filling a pool with water and then releasing the water into the sinkhole to produce a pressure pulse. For each experiment, the water will be released at a different rate to test aquifer response to a range of recharge rates. We will use a variety of geophysical sensors to probe the response to the recharge events in multiple ways.
