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.

We would like to announce a late-breaking DAS RCN workshop on “Managing Distributed Acoustic Sensing Data” to be held at the Marriott Marquis on the Sunday prior to AGU, December 11th, 12-5pm CT. The goal of this half-day workshop is to discuss current practices, challenges and solutions for managing large DAS datasets. It is widely recognized that DAS datasets are some of the largest in geophysics, with more DAS data being collected every day. The workshop will provide a forum for DAS practit… [more]

The Photonics Seismology & Earthquake Mechanics groups at the University of Michigan are looking for one or two graduate students to study Ocean-bottom Seismology with Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS). Research topics of interest include earthquake early warning, ambient seismic noise source characterization, underwater volcanology, sediment transport, and oceanic flow monitoring. The groups are also developing new techniques to image fault zones and analyze earthquake rupture processes with … [more]

All, Please find the suggested DAS format for sharing data on IRIS on the GitHub of the DAS-RCN https://github.com/DAS-RCN/IRIS_DASformat Please also consider the separate meta-data https://github.com/DAS-RCN/DAS_metadata The idea behind it is to provide a format with the minimum of common information required to process data. Yet it is flexible enough to allow custom header information Comment to this version 0.9 are welcome until Dec 15st, 2022. After that a version 1.0 will be fixed and w… [more]
