• We calculate and refine 869 full moment tensors of small fluid-induced seismicity from The Geysers geothermal field • Source types depend on the faulting style and magnitude, suggesting that the stress state has an influence on the volumetric components • Positive volumetric components increase during high injection periods and near the wells, indicating their relation with pore pressure buildup
