Distributed Acoustic Sensing

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is a potentially transformative technology in the geosciences and engineering. The rapidly increasing interest in DAS arises from its use in continuous arrays that can be kilometers in length while providing spatial resolution of meters and frequency response from millihertz to kilohertz. This mailing list provides a forum for discussion on all topics related to DAS technology including: applications, installation, data acquisition, handling and processing of data, engineering and scientific technical development, and advertisement of upcoming events, workshops, meetings, or other opportunities in the DAS community.

The DAS research group at the Géoazur <https://geoazur.oca.eu> research lab (France) is seeking to appoint two Postdoctoral Researchers and one Engineer to advance marine applications of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS). DAS exploits the great sensitivity of optical fibres to thermo-seismo-acoustic perturbations to turn standard telecom cables into high-density seafloor sensor arrays. This ground-breaking instrumental approach has already demonstrated its potential on marine cables for the m… [more]
