Fluid-induced seismicity patterns

Interpretation of fluid-induced seismicity patterns

This project is part of the VISTA CSD and aims at understanding the spatial and temporal evolution of earthquake clusters as a response to long-term fluid injection in different environments.

Main content

Full waveform cross-correlation methods will be used to precisely relocate the observed microseismicity and classify and characterize individual events. Investigation of the rupture dimensions and stress drops of the microseismic events will better relate their causality to the injected fluids and their volumes and rates of injection.
