Statistical Analysis of the Induced Basel 2006 Earthquake Sequence


Other (Open)

Key Findings:

  • Statistical approach accounting for flow rate at the injection borehole performs best

  • Method forms basis for the Short Term Seismic Forecasting tool (STSF)

  • Method can be used as probabilistic alarm system which is an improvement on the traffic-light alarm system for induced seismicity

NRAP Tools: N/A, Analog study

Location: Basel EGS site, Switzerland
