S013:
Fiber-Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) for Geophysical and Industrial Applications





Session ID#: 26179

Session Description:
Distributed Acoustic Sensors (DAS) record the sound and vibration signals along several kilometers of sensing optical fiber with fine spatial resolution (1-10m) and over a wide frequency range (millihertz to tens kilohertz). The DAS provides a flexible large sensing aperture for acquiring high resolution acoustic data in time and space. The use of DAS in the industry for flow profiling, high resolution borehole/surface seismic imaging, micro-seismic monitoring for fractures have been accelerated with the improvements in the sensitivity, the advances in real-time big data processing, and flexible deployment of fiber optic sensing cables. There is a growing interest in the use of DAS for critical geophysical infrastructure applications such as earthquake and near-surface passive seismic analysis including the development of tailored or novel numerical techniques. This session aims to engage both scientific and industrial communities to share their knowledge and experiences in using DAS for novel geophysical or industrial applications.
