Monitoring earthquakes at gas storages in Italy

Nov 25, 2016  ·   Projects

Seiscomp3 and gempa modules will be used by OGS to monitor the seismicty in north-east Italy. The monitoring targets include sites where gas is stored in depleted natural reservoirs. We have trained OGS staff members to use SeisComP3 and the gempa modules for observing and analyzing the earthquakes including their moment tensors.
