Using the latest technology of seismic vibrators and seismic sensing with fibre-optic cables, also known as Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), you will develop high-density multi-component seismic acquisition methodology for both active-source and passive seismology. The high-density recording will be optimally suited to separate weak reflection signals and/or earthquake responses from system generated and anthropogenic noise. The main challenge is how to deal with that noise, via modelling and field data, to obtain high-fidelity reflection images. For the latter, you will use the controllable vibrator developed in Delft and your multi-component fibre-optic sensing system to carry out reflection experiments in Groningen, a province in the Netherlands that is severely affected by induced earthquakes.
