DIG MT Fieldwork August 2022

In August 2022 researchers commenced the second phase of MT fieldwork adding another profile to the original survey.

We added 16 stations to the original 12. We tried to mitigate noise sources and be in quiet locations. Below are some of the noise sources we encounter but we can filter the data to remove these signals.

We’re currently processing the data to see what the subsurface structure looks like. Watch this space for results!
