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

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.
