- Induced Seismicity Risk Management Strategies: Montney Case Study | Presentation/PosterChange of in-situ stresses due to hydraulic fracturing activities may induce earthquakes on critically-stressed faults when pressure pathways exists for communication to the nearby faults.
- Predictions of Earthquake Ground Motions in Western AB | Presentation/Poster
- Network Performance Estimation- Verifying Prediction of MC with Observation from an Earthquake Catalogue | Presentation/PosterWe address the problem of designing a seismic network for monitoring induced seismic events that must meet specific performance criteria. We propose a method to assess a fundamental measure of performance without an earthquake catalogue: magnitude of completeness.
- MS Network Performance Est: Avoiding False Negatives Traffic Light | Presentation/PosterIn recent years high pressure fluid injection into rock has become a common process in a number of applications resulting in the potential for triggered seismic events. As such, induced seismicity monitoring is essential in order to understand and limit the hazards of such processes.
- Local Magnitude Formula for Western Alberta | Presentation/PosterWe examine the distance attenuation of peak Wood-Anderson (WA) amplitudes obtained from earthquakes in western Alberta, to develop a regionally-calibrated local magnitude (ML) equation.
- ISM- BB Seismometer & Geophone Comparison | Presentation/PosterThe 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.
- Designing Networks for Induced Seismicity | Presentation/PosterNetwork design for induced seismicity monitoring is of critical importance. In many applications, networks for induced seismicity have specific criteria with respect to minimum detection magnitudes and the accuracy of event locations.
