SHARE, a collaborative project within the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission, aims at constructing a harmonized seismic hazard model for the Euro-Mediterranean region.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the improvement of the concept of Enhanced Geothermal Systems by addressing the need to investigate the role of induced seismicity.
The coming up project DESERVE addresses the ground challenges in the Dead Sea region.
Seismic hazard analysis of synthetic earthquake catalogues from discrete element fracture modeling in fluid-stimulated geothermal reservoirs
Numerical modelling of the earthquake deformation in the Andes
Creation of a geomechanical-numerical model for the Marmara region to simulate different earthquake and tsunami scenarios for this region
Towards the Understanding of Induced Seismicity in Enhanced Geothermal Systems
Creation of a 3D geomechanical numerical model of the Alberta Basin region which quantifies the 3D absolute stress state
The contemporary in situ crustal stress of Switzerland to support the search for a deep geological final repository for radioactive waste.
Creation of a 3D geomechanical model of mining induced stress changes in a South African gold mine
The European-Mediterranean earthquake catalogue (EMEC) for the last millennium
The World Stress Map (WSM) is the global compilation of information on the present-day stress field of the Earth's crust with 21,750 stress data records in its current WSM database release 2008
The quantitative World Stress Map database allows to display stress magnitudes in 2D and 3D stress space, and to investigate stress ratios in relation to depth, lithology and tectonic faulting regime.
