Gallen deep geothermal project (Switzerland): Fault reactivation and fluid interactions imaged by microseismicity
Microseismic monitoring provides detailed information about the microseismicity
of an area and how a rock is responding to mining or oil & gas production activities.
And it continued: "This is not unexpected since hydraulic fracturing is generally accompanied by microseismicity
(very small earthquakes that too small to be felt)."

The occurrence and development of rock microfracture release energy in the form of elastic waves, that is, acoustic emissions (AEs) or microseismicity

and high pore pressures during hydraulic stimulation experiments in low permeability granitic rocks," Journal of Geophysical Research, vol.
Scientists could send down instruments to measure temperature and stress pressure in the crust and rock, as well as use fibre cables to measure microseismicity
(very faint tremors).

'We are suggesting that in order to study the microseismicity
Therefore, we believe microseismicity
is unlikely to be responsible for the fast [theta](t) oscillations.
