Back to a technical session in Paris



Date :March 14, 2019
Place : Paris


On March 14, 2019, the French Rock Mechanics Committee (CFMR) organized a technical session in Paris on the theme of induced seismicity.

The Institute was invited to present the state of knowledge on the link between industrial activity and seismicity, in particular with regard to the phenomena involved and to the solutions of risk and hazard management. It was based on an important synthesis work carried out in 2017, as part of the support mission of Ineris to the public authorities.


An overview of the topic as well as study applications on which Ineris works were presented.
