This thesis explores the effect of fluid substitution, pore-pressure diffusion and stresses due to hydraulic fracturing on the elastic velocities and microcrack orientations in the surrounding rock. I develop a workflow incorporating three main components to model the velocity field around the...
Microseismic events are often recorded during hydraulic fracturing stimulations of unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs like tight sands and shales, Enhanced Geothermal Systems, mine development and carbon dioxide sequestration. Most applications involve locating and tracking these events over...
