Background seismicity in the Beetaloo Sub-basin

Background seismicity and estimating seismic hazards in the Beetaloo, NT

This project will establish long-term background seismic data to characterise the current natural seismic activity in the Beetaloo Sub-basin in the Northern Territory. This baseline data can then be used to distinguish any possible increases in seismic activity resulting from future gas development and operations in the region.

In addition, the project will predict the seismic hazard caused by any future natural and induced activities using physics-based ground motion computations.
