New research project—Characterizing Ground Motion from Induced Seismicity in the Context of Cultural Noises

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to McGIll University under the seismicity research and monitoring funding envelope. The research project, targeted at local community matters, will conduct a systematic review of induced seismicity felt reports from northeast B.C. and cross-examine with a comprehensive seismicity catalog to identify possible relations between ground motion (instrument measurement), felt reports (societal response) and earthquake source properties. The result will be a public database of ground motion measurements from a variety of cultural noises, tectonic, and induced earthquakes, that can facilitate the communication of induced seismicity hazard and safety measures. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.
