To analyze temporal velocity variations
Microseismic data recorded between 1996 and 2008 was used to determine the temporally varying seismic velocity of the Coso geothermal field. In this study, the double difference tomography method was applied to simultaneously locate a suite of microseismic events and determine the compressional and shear wave velocity as well as their ratio.
