Induced and triggered seismicity occurs in conjunction with human activities such as reservoir impoundments, mining operations, conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbon production, geothermal energy exploitation, wastewater disposal, CO2 sequestration and gas storage operations as well as volcanic and hydrogeological processes. The stability of faults is affected by external solicitations such as pore-pressure diffusion, relaxation effects as well as stress field perturbations related to mass and/or volume changes, dike intrusions and earthquake-earthquake interactions. A better understanding of the physical processes governing induced and triggered seismicity is important for the assess the risk of current and future industrial activities, including the geological disposal of nuclear waste.
The study of Induced and triggered seismicity is inherently an interdisciplinary problem, which requires the combination of seismological, hydrogeological, geodetic data and a wide range of modeling approaches. This session welcome contributions covering the analysis and modeling of induced and triggered seismicity at different spatial scales and environments.
Relevant topics to be presented include but are not limited to case-studies of induced and triggered seismicity, spatio-temporal variations of physical parameters (including stress, pressure and temperature changes), spatio-temporal patterns of seismicity, modeling and risk mitigation strategies.
The goal of the session is to cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of these topics.
