Itasca Consulting Ltd (ICL) is pleased to announce the latest releases of the InSite family of software. There are additional developments and feature enhancements across acquisition, processing, visualization and interpretation. The highlights in v3.15 include:
Visualisation of location confidence using uncertainty analysis
The calculation and visualisation of location uncertainty using posterior probability distribution (referred to as confidence isosurface) reveal the region with user specified confidence level and the uncertainties in arrival time picking, polarity analysis, and velocity model.
Detect weak signals using matched filter
The matched filter can detect/trigger weak signals that have similar pattern as the template. This triggering method is ideal to harvest weak and repetitive events.
Location of events without first arrival picks
This new function named as source scan allows the user to locate an event without manual picking. The source scan method is formulated as a global grid search method by evaluating the possibility of every grid in the search volume as the source position. The grid point that can maximize the stacked energy is considered the most likely source position. For computation efficiency Gaussian Particle Swarm Optimization is employed and the travel time for each grid point must be imported from a pre-calculated traveltime lookup table.
Generation of Super-stage for enhanced interpretation
A super stage can be created by combining multiple consecutive stages close in location. The main purpose is to enrich the catalogue for statistically robust analysis of the temporal-spatial pattern of microseismicity correlated with the repeated and thus similar treatment operations. The events are shifted toward the centroid and the treatment curve is averaged across multiple stages.
