Mitigating Induced Seismicity for successful geo-resources applications

In brief

The MISS project aims to:
- Perform controlled 50-100 m scale fluid injection and fault stimulation experiments in basement rock at over 1000m depth – The Bedretto tunnel – actively pre-conditioning the stress distribution on the fault in experiments designed to test different physicial hypotheses,
- Integrate and validate the results from deep underground experiments, experimental rock deformation laboratories, numerical physics and dynamic modeling and observations from natural earthquakes.
