Recent Innovations in Geophone Array Seismology

The availability of geophone systems that allow continuous recording of
seismic signals has opened up many new directions and applications in
seismology research. Compared to broadband sensors, these geophone systems
are generally cheaper and easier to deploy. These systems can be rapidly
deployed (e.g., important for aftershock studies) and have a minimal
environmental impact (e.g., important in sensitive areas). The low cost and
ease of deployment also allows these instruments to be deployed in very
large numbers, as large N arrays, which can reduce or eliminate spatial
aliasing by recording a well-sampled wavefield. These geophones typically
have a corner frequency of 5-Hz or 10-Hz and can record single or
3-component data. As a result, they are ideal for crustal-scale,
high-resolution imaging studies using both active and passive sources.

In this session, we invite abstracts that are related to geophone array,
full wavefield, or large N seismology, broadly defined. Studies can
include, but are not limited to, instrument/sensor development, ambient
noise tomography, active-source and earthquake seismology, and
microseismicity, aftershock, and other environmental seismic signal
monitoring. We particularly encourage abstracts that are related to the
IRIS Oklahoma community full-wavefield experiment.
