MSATSI – MATLAB package for stress inversion
MSATSI is a MATLAB software package that allows performing the stress inversion using earthquake focal mechanisms. MSATSI is based on the C library SATSI created by Hardebeck and Michael (2006) (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/software/#SATSI). MSATSI provides a framework for calculating the deviatioric stress tensor together with its uncertainties using bootstrap resampling method. It also allows displaying the stress inversion results using a variety of plots.
hybridMT – MATLAB package for moment tensor inversion and refinement
hybridMT is the seismic moment tensor inversion and refinement software package designed for MATLAB/shell environment.
fociMT – Moment tensor inversion software
focimt is the stand-alone command line application for seismic moment tensor inversion in time domain that is optimized for local-to-regional applications and seismic networks. The application is a part of hybridMT package.
DXFLib – MATLAB DXF-handling library
DXFLib is a library written in MATLAB that allows to create simple AutoCAD DXF files. Autocad DXF is a popular file format that can be interpreted in many CAD-related applications. AutoCAD DXF can be also converted to a PDF file containing 3D geometry using any 3D printer driver (for example the one bundled in the free Bentley View application).
JAGUARS Research project
The study of faulting and rupture processes requires direct observations. In the Earth crust deep mines provide a unique opportunity for this purpose by giving access to the focal depth of earthquakes. To investigate the physics of earthquakes and link laboratory and seismological observations, the JAGUARS (Japanese-German Acoustic Emission Research in South Africa) Working Group was established. The JAGUARS project continuously monitored pico- and nanoseismic activity at 3.5km depth in Mponeng deep gold mine in the Republic of South Africa.
GEISER Research project
The GEISER project stands for Geothermal Engineering Integrating Mitigation of Induced Seismicity in Reservoirs. It started at the beginning of the 2010 after successful contract negotiations with the European Commission. EC funding of € 5.3 Mio was granted for 3.5 years. The project addressed several of the major challenges the development of geothermal energy is facing, including the mitigation of induced seismicity to an acceptable level.
