Course Content

This workshop will focus on applications of anisotropic models and methods to seismic fracture characterization and microseismic monitoring of hydraulic fracturing.

Topics of study will include:

  • Effective medium theory for fractured rocks
  • Fracture characterization using multicomponent data
  • Azimuthal moveout and AVO (amplitude-variation-with-offset) analysis
  • Estimation of attenuation anisotropy for fractured formations
  • Anisotropic models in seismic processing for unconventional shale plays
  • Microseismic event localization and estimation of source mechanisms
  • Monitoring propagation of hydraulic fractures
  • Geomechanics of microseismicity
  • Fracture and reservoir imaging from microseismic data
  • Applications of fiber optics in microseismic monitoring
