Distributed Acoustic Sensing in Seismology

We review our recent work on chirped-pulse distributed acoustic sensing and its use for the characterization of teleseismic and microseismic activity. We show that this tool may offer impressive new capabilities in the field of seismology, particularly in underwater scenarios.
