Title: Geophysical Monitoring with Seismic Metamaterial Contrast Agents

Abstract

Acoustic impedance tube and forced-oscillation seismic core test measurements were conducted to examine the low-frequency properties of acoustic metamaterial contrast agents. Water-stable suspensions of metal-organic framework (MOF) nanoparticles increased sound transmission loss (100-1250 Hz) and seismic attenuation (10-70 Hz), and reduced Young’s modulus of nanofluid-saturated Berea Sandstone cores. Preliminary measurements were used to parameterize a seismic wave velocity model. These results indicate that injectable MOF nanofluid contrast agents have potential to enhance seismic delineation of subsurface fluids and structures.
