Program intensity: Introducing seismic expertise in geothermal sites
As part of EDC’s initiatives in Geosciences Studies and Researches for Exploration and Resource Management, the PESST Program Intensity was created to provide information on well targets with potential permeability while providing geohazard insights, particularly on earthquakes. Two (2) projects exist under Program Intensity. Through these, EDC harnessed its expertise in seismic monitoring and tomography, as well as ground deformation monitoring, and applied it to the geothermal sites.
Correlation between the projects under Program Intensity triggered by the alert systems will enable a scientific input in conducting mitigations and safety measures. All findings will be correlated with other geohazard initiatives in order to strengthen the interpretations.
