Fracture complexity occurs due to interaction of the hydraulic fracture with the natural fractures in the near well bore region. Measuring and monitoring that complexity and changes over time can aid in shale reservoir exploration and development. Shear wave splitting is an important technology for shale reservoir exploration and development.
