Mitigating Induced Seismicity for Successful Geo-Resources Applications (MISS)

The MISS project aims to:

  • perform controlled 50-100 meter scale fluid injection and fault stimulation experiments in basement rock at over 1000m depth
  • actively pre-conditioning the stress distribution on the fault in experiments designed to test different physical hypotheses,
  • integrate and validate the results from deep underground experiments, experimental rock deformation laboratories, numerical physics and dynamic modelling and observations from natural earthquakes
