Abstract

Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) is a relatively recent development in the use of fiber-optic cable for measurement of ground motion. Discrete fiber-optic sensors, typically using a Bragg diffraction grating, have been in research and development and field testing for more than 15 years with geophysical applications at least 12 years old (Bostick, 2000, and summary in Keul et al., 2005). However, developments in recent years have sought to remove the need for point sensors by using the fiber cable itself as a sensor (Mestayer et al., 2011; Miller et al., 2012).
