Seismic Response to Mining

Revision as of 18:40, 6 August 2018 by JohanWesseloo (talk | contribs)

The green area of activities in the flowchart entitled “seismic response to mining” is where the seismic sources in the mine are identified, understood and the seismic hazard is quantified, before control measures are applied to reduce the seismic risk to a tolerable level. The main tools to investigate the seismic response to mining are numerical models, seismological models and case studies of historical seismic response to mining.
