Peter Geiser, Alfred Lacazette and Jan Vermilye introduce tomographic fracture imaging (TFI) as a new semblance-based tool using surface seismic networks to directly map both the natural and induced fracture systems of the Earth’s brittle crust. In contrast to microseismic data consisting solely of hypo-centres TFI is said to have the ability to obtain images of the actual fractures themselves.
