Baseline seismic monitoring of the Canning Basin, WA

April 6th, 2022

This fact sheet provides a brief overview of new GISERA research based on gathering and evaluating baseline seismic data in the Canning Basin.

The research project will characterise the current natural seismic activity and cultural seismic noise within the Canning Basin in Western Australia. The baseline data can then be used to identify any potential increase in seismic activity due to planned gas extraction operations in the region.
