New research project--Integration of Ground Motions into Induced Seismicity Risk Management in Northeast B.C.

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Nanometrics Inc. under the seismicity research and monitoring funding envelope. The research project will develop regional ground motion models for induced seismic events, which can be used for the assessment of associated hazards in the future. The project will also review existing magnitude thresholds of traffic-light protocols (TLPs) on the basis of ground motions for effective induced seismicity risk management.

New research project--B.C. Top-down Survey and Root Cause Analysis

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Carleton University, Bridger Photonics and GreenPath Energy under their methane research envelope. The project will develop and conduct an aerial top-down methane survey, combined with Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) ground surveys and root cause analysis, to understand potential causes of methane releases and their magnitude. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.
