CRIEPI’s Fractured Rock Studies - Borehole-to-borehole acoustic tomography

CRIEPI has conducted a number of tests for the demonstration of acoustic tomography as a methodology for fracture characterisation. The acquired tomographic images of seismic velocities and attenuation have been used to illustrate to image potential hydraulic interconnections between borehole pairs.
