The Aftershock Imaging with Dense Arrays (AIDA) project recorded 12 days of high-density seismic array data following the 23 August 2011 Mineral, Virginia (USA), earthquake. AIDA utilized short-period, vertical-component seismographs at 201 locations to record closely spaced data that would reduce spatial aliasing. Interstation correlation enabled a detection threshold between magnitude −1.5 and −2. A joint hypocenter and velocity inversion algorithm was applied to compressional and shear wave arrival times for 300 of the larger events. Traveltime misfits were minimized using a constant velocity of Vp = 6.2–6.25 and Vs = 3.61–3.63. Hypocenter location error estimates for this range of...
