Description

An Introduction to Mining Seismology describes comprehensively the modern methods and techniques used to monitor and study seismicity and rockbursts in mines. Key case histories from various worldwide mining districts clearly illustrate and skillfully emphasize the practical aspects of mining seismology. This text is intended as a handbook for geophysicists and mining and rock mechanics engineers working at mines. It will also serve as an essential reference tool for seismologists working at research institutions on local seismicity not necessarily induced by mining.

Key Features

  • Presents a comprehensive description of seismicity induced by mining worldwide
  • Provides information on optimum network planning and seismic event location procedures in deep mines
  • Covers a broad array of topics including focal mechanism, moment tensor, and double-couple versus non-double-couple seismic events in mines
  • Includes data on source parameters and scaling relations for seismic events in mines

Readership

Graduate students and researchers in seismology, mining, and rock mechanics
