Combined approach of poroelastic and earthquake nucleation applied to the reservoir-induced seismic activity in the Val d’Agri area, Italy

In this work, an approach is developed to study the seismicity associated with the impoundment and level changes of a water reservoir (reservoir induced seismicity – RIS). The proposed methodology features a combination of a semi-analytical poroelastic model with an earthquake nucleation approach ba...
