ISTI presents at the EGU in Vienna and SSA in Reno

ISTI is one of 4 sponsors for the SSA meeting being held in Reno Nevada this week, April 20-22, 2016. With HMSC we are co-sponsoring the annual luncheon on Wednesday.

ISTI’s Paul Friberg is presenting in the induced seismicity session at 8:30AM on Wednesday. The abstract for Paul’s talk can be reached via the link below.


We are also present at the EGU meeting in Vienna. Meet up with Josh Stachnik in Vienna at the EGU this week where he is co-author on a poster on Nuclear Test Depth Determination with Synthetic Modelling: Global Analysis from PNEs to DPRK-2016.

ISTI at AGU 2015


ISTI will have our annual booth at the Fall American Geophysical Union meeting December 14 to 18, 2015. Please come by our booth number 612 and let us know how things are, how we can help solve your problems and just to say hi.

We will have a number of our scientific and programming staff on hand and will be demonstrating some new Tsunami monitoring software we are working on for NOAA. We will also be demonstrating some of our Induced Seismicity monitoring tools including EZ Earthworm, our web admin tool for Earthworm systems. ISTI is a geophysical service and software company that specializes in Earthquake science and monitoring, Infrasound science and monitoring, and Radionuclide monitoring. We look forward to meeting and talking with you at AGU.

In addition, our staff scientists are presenting a number of interesting posters and talks at this Fall’s meeting. They include:

Follow up after AGU: This was a great AGU and we had a lot of good visits by friends and customers. Thank you for coming by our booth and for the interesting discussions.

We even spotted some Star Wars critters in the exhibit hall this time.


ISTI presents and helps sponsor SSA Meeting

ssa_posterISTI is one of the sponsor’s of the 2015 Seismological Society of America annual meeting, going on this week in Pasadena California. Stop by the ISTI booth and talk with CEO Paul Friberg.

In addition we are presenting a poster (#86) on some of our work in Ohio on Thursday’s session on Induced Seismicity. We look forward to a busy meeting at SSA which is turning out to be the largest one yet with over 800 participants. Stop by and say hi to Paul at our booth (which is not hard to find) or at the poster!

We also have friends from Silicon Audio showing off their new broadband low-noise accelerometer at the ISTI booth. Come and see this revolutionary new sensor and talk with one of the company representatives on-site.


Visit ISTI at the 2014 AGU fall meeting! Booth 1823

As always, ISTI will be at the AGU fall meeting. You can find us booth 1823 where we will be showing off some new Tsunami monitoring software we are involved with developing. We are still heavily involved in 3 areas of geophysics:

  1. Nuclear explosion monitoring,
  2. General geophysical software development using Open Source tools and packages include Earthworm, and
  3. Geophysical science services for earthquake and other waveform-based technologies

Please stop by and chat with us about our projects in monitoring Geothermal, Oil and Gas fields, Injection Wells, Hydraulic Fracture stimulation projects, or other induced seismicity concerns. See how ISTI’s expert staff can help you solve your geophysical problems and establish a long term relationship with our company that is now in its 16th year of operations.

Please come and meet some of our newest seismologists (Ben, Mike, and Josh) and the usual suspects of Paul, Sid, and Stefan.

ISTI presents our Ohio Induced Seismicity research at SEG Meeting 2014

ISTI’s Paul Friberg will be presenting at the SEG Post-Workshop meeting on Induced Seismicity as an invited speaker. This is following on the release of our Seismological Research Letters (SRL)  paper on Hydraulic Fracture induced earthquakes in Ohio, and our presentation at the Banff Injection Induced Seismicity Meeting in September 2014. The SRL paper was widely reported on by the media the week of October 15, 2014 when the Seismological Society of America did an early on-line release.

ISTI presents at 2014 SSA in Anchorage

ISTI’s Paul Friberg presented a paper on induced seismicity at the recent Seismological Society of America meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. The research focused on a case of induced seismicity from a hydraulic fracture operation in Ohio, the site of nascent regulation by the state regulatory agency. A well operator most probably intersected a high permeability pathway that allowed pore pressure changes to reach a tectonic fault in the basement, triggering a cluster of magnitude 2 earthquakes.
