We had an experiment of a continuous monitoring system using a continuous seismic source and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) at Kyushu Island, Japan in the fall 2019. The active seismic source system continuously generates waveforms with wide frequency range. The seismic monitoring signal is then recorded by dense and long seismic array including DAS. By stacking the continuous waveforms, our monitoring system improves signal-to-noise ratio of the seismic signal. Thus, less-energy vibration using small-size source could be utilized for the exploration of broader geological targets. Presently, we have deployed the small size monitoring source system in the geothermal field in the northeast Kyushu Island. Although our monitoring source system is small and generates high frequency vibrations (12-22Hz), the signal propagated >80 km distance using two month continuous source data. Our field experiments demonstrate that variation of seismic velocity of the crust could be identified with high accuracy (~0.01 %). To monitor the localized reservoir in higher spatial resolution, we recorded the monitoring data using DAS. Using the DAS, we succeeded to identify the temporal variation of seismic velocity. By using both continuous source and DAS, we are able to monitor reservoir in wide area with lower cost.
