Estimating the location of a microseismic event when using a vertical array of receivers

John C. Bancroft

ABSTRACT

The accuracy of using a vertical array of receivers is investigated for locating microseismic events. Noise was added to the clock-time of the receivers and the errors in estimating the source location displayed. The errors vary with orientation and distance from the receiver array and the size of the receiver array.
