Review of Solid Earth article MS# 2021-63,
The manuscript of Lipus et al., “Dynamic motion monitoring of a 3.6 km long steel rod in a borehole during cold-water injection with distributed fiber-optic sensing” is an article concerning the observation of thermally induced stick-slip events. Cold water pumped into a well causes the rod inserted into the well to contract, with shaking from the stick-slip events recorded on DAS. The results are compared against DAS and DTS data to build a picture of where and why these events are occurring in the well. I think that the results of the paper could be interesting the readership of Solid Earth.
For this paper, I have only a few small critiques that should be addressed before acceptance with Solid Earth. In general, my comments revolve around better explaining some of the arguments the authors are trying to make. A more detailed list of my thoughts follows below:
Near Lines 372 & 377 & elsewhere: “extend” should be “extent”
Figure 9: Why do events only seem to occur at the top of the casing liner after ~16 minutes?
