• The risks associated with induced seismicity have risen in prominence with the occurrence of several large earthquakes characterized as induced, which have caused public concern in multiple jurisdictions. As a result, regulatory bodies have mandated risk mitigation strategies to govern the associated activities. These include monitoring programs, which involve the deployment of real-time seismic networks. There are several challenges and options to consider when planning and realizing a monitoring network, including the choice of ground motion sensing technology. This study evaluates the performance of two types of instruments in terms of their suitability for induced seismic monitoring: broadband seismometers and geophones.
