Using Seismic Noise to Monitor Iceland

The Project

The IS-NOISE project aims at capturing seismic velocity changes through time by utilizing continuous ambient seismic noise and applying correlation and interferometric techniques. Different settings in Iceland will be investigated including a geothermal field, five different volcanic centres and the South seismic zone. The main goal is to retrieve changes possibly associated with industrial operation (fluid injection, in particular), volcanic unrest, and the onset of seismic activity.

IS-NOISE is a three year project (2018-2020) that is funded by the Icelandic Research Fund.
