ECGS – FKPE Workshop Similar problems are known from different areas within

Adrien Oth whether geothermal power production is an alternative
European Center for Geodynamics and Seismology to other energy sources, although geothermal energy is
renewable, base-loadable and CO2 free.
SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE Induced seismicity is also reported from gas fields,
mines and water reservoirs in Europe. The widely

Thus the future energy supply is related to induced
seismicity in several fields. On the other hand, some of

LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE urgently need more data, physical theories and case
studies to get a better handle on induced seismicity.
A. Oth ECGS, Luxembourg The aim of the ECGS-FKPE Workshop on

mainly academic researchers as well as representatives

shaking due to direct human intervention inside the • Modelling of source processes
Hilton Hotel Earth such as deep mining, water reservoirs etc. • Tectonic stress and rock physics related to
Earthquakes induced by geothermal exploration induced seismicity
Luxembourg activities, sometimes called deep heat mining, stopped • Strategies to avoid/reduce induced shaking
the multi-million EURO investments in Basel • Case studies
