Silixa to attend AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco, USA on 15-19 December, 2014

The American Geophysical Union’s Annual Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, showcasing the latest technology, research and emerging trends in earth sciences. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edge science, much of which has not yet been published.

Thomas I Coleman, Silixa’s Environmental Engineer, will be presenting on the use of fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (DTS) for borehole applications on 18 December 2014; between 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM. (Abstract Title: Quantification of Natural Gradient Flow Using Active Fibre Optic DTS in Sealed Boreholes, NS41C-06)

Distributed Temperature Sensing for process monitoring in deep fractured rock environments has been used in the oil and gas industry for over two decades. Improvements in DTS system resolution, methodology advancements, and improved data processing techniques have all contributed to a recent increase in the use of DTS  for shallow fractured rock hydrogeologic applications.

In his presentation, Thomas will focus on a powerful advance in DTS methodology, the use of response data collected during active cable heating, to better characterize natural gradient flow processes.
