Exploration Activity: Micro-Earthquake At Coso Geothermal Area (2011)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Coso Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Micro-Earthquake
Activity Date 2011
Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

Exploration Basis
To analyze temporal velocity variations
Microseismic data recorded between 1996 and 2008 was used to determine the temporally varying seismic velocity of the Coso geothermal field. In this study, the double difference tomography method was applied to simultaneously locate a suite of microseismic events and determine the compressional and shear wave velocity as well as their ratio.
