The Future of Passive Seismic Acquisition
Over the last 20-30 years the UK has played a leading role in the development, deployment and analysis of passive seismic data. This ranges from microseismic monitoring on faults, volcanoes or for energy production, to large scale imaging of the crust and mantle to understand tectonic/geodynamic processes. Recently there has been a move towards collecting large data sets, both spatially and temporally. This includes an increasing use of low power, easy to deploy land sensors and marine acquisition through ocean bottom seismometers or autonomous drones. This meeting is a chance to learn from past experiences, think about what the next 20-30 years will bring. Sessions and panel discussions will mix academic and industrial participants to generate a blend of new ideas.
