This submission includes an input file, plot file, Fortran conversion file, and 3D data file from the simulation of the temperature profile within the Test Bed #1 of the EGS Collab project. The simulation was executed with PNNL's STOMP-GT simulator, which reads the input file, and produces the STOMP-GT Simulated 2D Temperature Distribution Data (plot.001302 file). The Fortran conversion file, converts the STOMP-GT Simulated 2D Temperature Distribution Data (plot.001302) 2D results in local coordinates to 3D results in Homestake coordinates. This file contains the 2D temperature distribution from a STOMP-GT simulation of the EGS Collab Test Bed #1. The zero point of the grid is the center line of the West Access Drift on the drift floor on the 4850 Level of the Sanford Underground Research Facility.

This file contains temperature distributions around the West Access Drift on the 4850 Level of the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Homestake coordinates. This file was created from a two-dimensional simulation with STOMP-GT, and translated to a 3D distribution with the Fortran program stomptoleapfrog.f. The formatting for the leapfrog.001302 file is one input per line with x, y, z, t, with dimensions in ft and temperature in ˚C.

The solid Earth strains in response to the gravitational pull from the Moon, Sun, and other planetary bodies. Measuring the flexure of geologic material in response to these Earth tides provides information about the geomechanical properties of rock and sediment. Such measurements are particularly useful for understanding dilation of faults and fractures in competent rock. A new approach to measuring earth tides using fiber optic distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) is presented here. DAS was originally designed to record acoustic vibration through the measurement of dynamic strain on a fiber optic cable. Here, laboratory experiments demonstrate that oscillating strain can be measured with DAS in the microHertz frequency range, corresponding to half-day (M2) lunar tidal cycles. Although the magnitude of strain measured in the laboratory is larger than what would be expected due to earth tides, a clear signal at half-day period was extracted from the data. With the increased signal-to-noise expected from quiet field applications and improvements to DAS using engineered fiber, earth tides could potentially be measured in deep boreholes with DAS. Because of the distributed nature of the sensor (0.25 m measurement interval over kilometers), fractures could be simultaneously located and evaluated. Such measurements would provide valuable information regarding the placement and stiffness of open fractures in bedrock. Characterization of bedrock fractures is an important goal for multiple subsurface operations such as petroleum extraction, geothermal energy recovery, and geologic carbon sequestration.
The data is based on this paper submitted into the Journal "Sensors" : "Distributed Acoustic Sensing of Strain at Earth Tide Frequencies" by Matthew W Becker and Thomas I Coleman, Vol. 19, 2019.

This file contains the first set of tracer data for the EGS Collab testbed. The first set of tracer tests were conducted during October-November, 2018. We have included tracer data for C-dots, chloride, fluorescein, and rhodamine-B. The details about the tracer test can be found in Background and Methods of Tracer Tests (Mattson et al. (2019)) (also included in this package).

As part of the geophysical characterization suite for the first EGS Collab tesbed, here are the baseline cross-well seismic data and resultant models. The campaign seismic data have been organized, concatenated with geometry and compressional (P-) & and shear (S-) wave picks, and submitted as SGY files. P-wave data were collected and analyzed in both 2D and 3D, while S-wave data were collected and analyzed in 2D only. Inversion models are provided as point volumes; the volumes have been culled to include only the points within source/receiver array coverage. The full models space volumes are also included, if relevant. An AGU 2018 poster by Linneman et al. is included that provides visualizations/descriptions of the cross-well seismic characterization method, elastic moduli calculations, and images of model inversion results. 3D model of P-wave data

This package contains data associated with a proceedings paper (Chai et al., 2019) submitted to the 44th Workshop on Geothermal Reservoir Engineering. The Geophysical Model text file contains density, P- and S-wave seismic speeds on a 3D grid. The file has six columns and provides latitude (degree), longitude (degree), depth (km), P-wave speed (km/s), S-wave speed (km/s), and density (g/cm^3) at each grid point. The Interactive Geophysical Model API file is an interactive visualization of the 3D geophysical model. The visualization allows users to view depth slices and vertical profiles of the model side by side. The depth of the slices and the location of the profile can be changed.
