Thesis

Development of a real-time, spatial hazard map for re-entry management in hardrock underground mining

Summary

The thesis develops a method identify and quantify, time dependent seismic responses induced by mining. Seismic responses are micro-seismicity which is strongly spatially and temporally related . These responses are typically induced from blasting and large seismic events.

Why my research is important

Analysis of time dependent seismic responses is important for two major reasons:

1. Improvement of the practical management of the increased seismic hazard associated with heightened seismic activity.

2. Further understanding of the major influences that drive time dependent response.
