    Description

    Mobile seismic stations are used to study: the structure of the lithosphere, spatial and temporal seismicity in intraplate settings especially in postglacial faults, the reasons behind periodic swarms of earthquakes, mineral deposit systems and their location and genesis in relation to crustal and lithospheric structures, induced seismicity generated in hydraulic stimulation experiments in deep bedrock, and how to estimate and mitigate seismic risk in environments with shock sensitive high technology installations.
