[MIS02-08] ICDP DSeis 1: Introduction into JpGU 2019 papers on Drilling into Seismogenic zones of M2.0-5.5 earthquakes in South African gold mines
Keywords:ICDP DSeis, Seismogenic zone drilling, South African gold mines
The reliable measurement of the magnitude and orientation of stress at depth is a significant challenge (Brodsky et al., 2009). However, we overcame the difficulty. We intersected hypersaline water where geomicrobiologists started water and gas monitoring.
This paper reviews the scientific drilling and associated activities and briefly introduces the other reports (ICDP DSeis 2-10) presented in JpGU 2019 as shown below:
