Multicomponent distributed acoustic sensing: concept, theory, and applications
Conventionally, ground motion due to seismic waves is monitored using seismometers either as single point measurements or as arrays. Such acquisition systems are used both in exploration seismology and in seismic monitoring. In recent years, the use of optical fiber sensing has been steadily on the rise especially in the borehole environment for information, including, but not limited to, temperature, pressure, and strain. Optical fibers are enticing because of their dense spatial sampling and their low operation cost, given that the optical fiber is readily available at the time boreholes are ...
