Seismological investigation of crack formation in hydraulic rock fracturing experiments and in natural geothermal environments. Progress report, September 1, 1981-August 31, 1982

Description: Accomplishments during the present reporting period are: high-quality digital data obtained in the crater and the flank of Mt. St. Helens by the deployment of 9 event-recorders; discovery of striking differences in arrival times and amplitudes of seismic events between the crater station and flank stations; successful interpretation of the above observations by a powerful new method of seismogram synthesis called Gaussian Beam Method; evidence obtained at Mt. St. Helens for a close connection between the volcanic tremor and so-called long-period events; further development of our volcanic tremor model by including acoustic vibration in magma; and development of a high-temperature small-diameter borehole seismograph for use in search of a magma reservoir by listening to seismic events due to thermal stress.

Seismological investigation of crack formation in hydraulic rock-fracturing experiments and in natural geothermal environments. Progress report, September 1, 1982-August 31, 1983

Description: Progress is reported on the following: interpretation of seismic data from the recent activities in Long Valley, California; theoretical study on a source model for the long-period events and volcanic tremor observed at Mount St. Helens; calculation of synthetic seismograms for the tremor source model; analysis of the Easter Island tremor records; testing and application of the Gaussian beam synthetic method to observations at Mount St. Helens; and field testing and development of a high-temperature borehole seismograph.
