Task 2 - Microseismic Toolset for Fault Detection and Seismicity Mitigation 

This study is addressing induced seismicity challenges associated with geologic carbon storage. The aim is a data collection and analysis methodology with a fast turn-around time and substantial automation that can be used to quickly characterize and respond to changing subsurface conditions.
