Earthquake Rupture Dynamics of Induced Seismicity: Models and Observations

Session ID#: 26550

Session Description:
In recent years there has been increasing concern from the general public regarding the presence of seismicity in historically quiescent areas. Numerous investigations in these different areas have temporally and spatially linked the presence of this seismic activity to the anthropogenic sources, such as extraction of hydrocarbons, injection of fluids at depth, or loading of reservoirs behind dams. A detailed description of the rupture process can help begin to answer fundamental questions about the causative relationships between these operations and the slip process. In this session, we solicit abstracts that elucidate the processes of these suspected incidents of induced seismicity through application of detailed analysis of seismic waveforms to describe the rupture dynamics on the fault surface and model the geomechanical conditions, which allow for stress transfer and fluid percolation from these anthropogenic sources to trigger slip.
