Seismix startup that focuses on microseismic network design and real-time seismic monitoring with a wide range of services designed specifically for specific needs.
Design and optimization of seismic networks
The design of a seismic network is a very important phase of monitoring, during which the number of stations to be installed is defined and the layout is determined to achieve good detection and location capability.
This stage then answers the questions:
how many seismic stations?
What kind of sensors?
At what depth?
With what spatial distribution?
The answers arise from preliminary studies, site surveys, environmental seismic noise processing, spectral velocity simulations, and finally estimates of network detection capability for different layouts.
HOW TO OPTIMISE A SEISMIC NETWORK?
The optimization of a seismic network, on the other hand, is carried out after the installation phase of the first seismic stations by validating, with the first data acquired, the previously designed layout.
Real-time and off-line analysis of microseismicity
Automatic microseismic monitoring is real-time 24/7.
Manual review of automatically located seismic events is performed every day.
Instead, an off-line analysis is carried out with ad hoc developed software in cases where it is necessary to reprocess the data, or treat it with different methodologies from those used in real time.
At the customer's request, seismic event location performance can be further improved by optimizing P- and S-wave velocity models.
Quantitative interpretation of microseismicity
Microseismic monitoring usually lasts for several years. It is therefore useful, after a certain period, to statistically analyze the evolution in the space-time-magnitude domain of the seismicity detected in the area of interest and possibly correlate its variation with industrial activities.
