Geophysics Seminar: Dr. Andrew Frederiksen, University of Manitoba "Crust and Lithosphere of the Mid-continent: Tectonic Domains and Novel Seismic Imaging Techniques"
Speaker: Mirko van der Baan, University of Alberta "How Widespread is Human-Induced Seismicity in the USA and Canada?" Abstract There has been significant public and scientific interest in the observation of changed seismicity rate in North America since 2008, possibly due to human activities. We find that the seismicity rate in Oklahoma between 2008 and […]
Geophysics Seminar: Prof. Pascal Audet, University of Ottawa Title: Development of shear zone and fluid pressure along the megathrust fault at the Cascadia subduction zone Abstract: It has been the subject of numerous Hollywood movies, and is often referred to as “the big one” - a reference to the potentially massive earthquake and resulting tsunami […]
Title: Right Under Your Feet − A Novel Approach to Constrain Near-Surface P- and S-Wave Speeds Based on Body-Wave Polarization Abstract: Near-surface seismic structure is crucial in assessing earthquake hazards, since it is directly related to the level of ground shaking. Constraining the near-surface structure, however, is challenging, especially in the environments where drilling or […]

"The Complexity Just Below Our Feet and the Implications for the Fidelity of Land Seismic Data" By Christine Krohn Abstract State-of-the-art seismic methods,such as reservoir property estimation,time-lapse and Full Wavefie ld Inversion (FWI),are becoming routine in deepwater environments. Land data,however, presents challenges, pa rticularly when we consider the need for low-cost acquisition for unconventional plays.This […]
Speaker: Dr. Anton Kepic, Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia Title: Creating Volumetric Models of RQD for mining from Geophysical Measurements Abstract: An example using data from the Kevitsa Ni-Cu-PGE mine is provided to demonstrate how geophysical log data from many boreholes may be combined with 3D seismic data to provide a 3D model of RQD. […]
