AGU DAS Workshop SCIWS23, Sunday, 8 December 2019, Grand Hyatt, 8:00 - 16:00

Date: 11/15/2019

On Behalf of Herb Wang, University of Wisconsin - Madison

SCIWS23 Distributed-Acoustic-Sensing: Principles, Data Processing, and Applications in Earth Sciences
Date and Time: Sunday, 8 December 2019: 08:00 - 16:00
Location: Grand Hyatt, San Francisco
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) offers unique opportunities for acoustic sensing of the environment and is becoming more established in the seismic community and others because of its transformative potential. The workshop will provide an overview of the technology and its principles. Presenters include vendors whose equipment is being used by earth scientists. The technology overview will be followed a discussion of data processing and tools available, along with presentations by various teams illustrating applications that include near-surface characterization, infrastructure monitoring, earthquake seismology, hydrology, and geothermal reservoir and carbon sequestration monitoring.
The learning objective is to provide attendees a practical understanding of the potential and limitations of DAS when they consider using the technology for their application.
