Outcomes of the mine project

A list of outcomes of the MINE projects, including specific studies, internal reports, figures, maps, and software will be listed on this page.

A catalogue of anthropogenic induced seismicity

Triggered and induced seismicity, and specifically anthropogenic induced seismicity, is becoming a topic of extreme interest both for the scientific community and civil society. Several initiatives have started to promote an open discussion with all involved stakeholders and to develop scientific tools to monitor and analyse induced seismicity.

Given the focus of the MINE project on mining induced seismicity, we have actively participated in several initiatives, such as the THAIS initiative and the EPOS WP10.

In the framework of these collaboration, we have collected a number of contributions to build a catalogue and map of anthropogenic induced seismicity in Europe. The project is ongoing and map and catalogues will be updated.
