of a full moment tensor by lestsquares inversion (Eaton & Forouhideh 2010). The motivation for this analysis was to determine microseismic focal mechanisms based on P – wave peak amplitude, P and S – waves peak amplitudes and S – wave peak amplitude only to estimate the differences and uncertainties between these three different solutions. Furthermore authors decided to check how the mechanisms changes with different geometries of downhole monitoring array. In this study only synthetic data… CONTINUE READING
