*Distributed Acoustic Sensing in the Cryosphere*

*Presented by: Dr. Fabian Walter, ETH Zurich*

*Abstract: *Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) dramatically increases
seismic sensor coverage, turning kilometer-long fiber optic cables into
thousands of seismic sensors. DAS and similar approaches image seismic
sources in densely populated cities as well as deep ocean basins, far away
from the nearest conventional seismic station. Like in many other
disciplines, there is hope that DAS will fill critical monitoring gaps on
glaciers, ice sheets and avalanche-prone terrain. This talk will present
DAS measurements in the cryosphere, from technical aspects of cable
deployment to signal quality and source studies. Given these first
experiences, some conclusions of the potential and limitations of this
technique may already be drawn.

This is a joint Distributed Acoustic Sensing Research Coordination Network
(DAS RCN) and Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS)
Webinar. You can find out more information and sign up for the DAS RCN
