  1. The Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) is the submission point for all data collected from researchers funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Office (DOE GTO). The DOE GTO is providing access to its geothermal project information through the GDR. The GDR is powered by OpenEI, an energy information portal sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

  1. This data is in sac format and includes recordings of two active source events from 238 three-component nodal seismometers deployed at Bradys Hot Springs geothermal field as part of the PoroTomo project. The source was a viberoseis truck operating in P-wave vibrational mode and generatingmore » a swept-frequency signal. The files are 33 seconds long starting 4 seconds before each sweep was initiated. There is some overlap in the file times. « less
  2. *This submission provides corrections to GDR Submissions 844 and 845* Poroelastic Tomography (PoroTomo) by Adjoint Inverse Modeling of Data from Hydrology. The 3 *csv files containing pressure data are the corrected versions of the pressure dataset found in Submission 844. The dataset has been correctedmore » in the sense that the atmospheric pressure has been subtracted from the total pressure measured in the well. Also, the transducers used at wells 56A-1 and SP-2 are sensitive to surface temperature fluctuations. These temperature effects have been removed from the corrected datasets. The 4th *csv file contains corrected version of the pumping data found in Submission 845. The data has been corrected in the sense that the data from several wells that were used during the PoroTomo deployment pumping tests that were not included in the original dataset has been added. In addition, several other minor changes have been made to the pumping records due to flow rate instrument calibration issues that were discovered. « less
  3. Map of DAS, nodal, vibroseis and Reftek stations during March 2016 deployment. The plot on the left has nodal stations labeled; the plot on the right has vibroseis observations labeled. Stations are shown in map-view using Brady's rotated X-Y coordinates with side plots denoting elevationmore » with respect to the WGS84 ellipsoid. Blue circles denote vibroseis data, x symbols denote DAS (cyan for horizontal and magenta for vertical), black asterisks denote Reftek data, and red plus signs denote nodal data. This map can be found on UW-Madison's askja server at /PoroTomo/DATA/MAPS/Deployment_Stations.pdf « less
  4. This submission is an 8 day time history of vertical temperature measurements in Brady observation well 56-1 collected during the PoroTomo field experiment. The data was collected with a fiber-optic DTS system installed to a depth of 372 m below wellhead. DTS installation uses amore » double-loop set up. Data includes forward length and backward length temperature measurements. « less
  5. PoroTomo March 2016 (Task 6.4) Updated vibroseis source locations with UTM locations. Supersedes Updated vibroseis source location data for Stages 1-4, PoroTomo March 2016. This revision includes source point locations in UTM format (meters) for all four Stages of active source acquisition. Vibroseis sweepmore » data were collected on a Signature Recorder unit (mfr Seismic Source) mounted in the vibroseis cab during the March 2016 PoroTomo active seismic survey Stages 1 to 4. Each sweep generated a GPS timed SEG-Y file with 4 input channels and a 20 second record length. Ch1 = pilot sweep, Ch2 = accelerometer output from the vibe's mass, Ch3 = accel output from the baseplase, and Ch4 = weighted sum of the accelerometer outputs. SEG-Y files are available via the links below. « less
