Task 4 - Monitoring for faults at a critical state of stress

The final task will continue the development and demonstration of novel methods for monitoring for potential faults at a critical state of stress by extracting low-magnitude seismic signals associated with earth tides and anthropogenic injection/extraction activities. This work builds on a Subsurface Technology and Engineering Research, Development, and Demonstration (SubTER) effort led by LANL.
