GEISER Deliverable D6.2 presents the results of Task 6.2 in Work Package 6.
The objective of the task is to provide guidelines for seismic monitoring at EGS projects. The
goal is mitigation of induced seismicity, in particular the prevention of large magnitude events
(LME), i.e., seismic events that may cause nuisance and/or damage to local population,
industry and/or infrastructure. The guidelines are aimed at both regulators and operators and
address two import aspects of seismic monitoring: (1) monitoring requirements, which can be
defined in terms of data quality, temporal/spatial coverage, resolution, etc., and (2)
monitoring network design and optimization, which is presented in a number of case studies.
