Workshop at the University of Pretoria, South Africa

On May 23-24, 2023, the Seismicity Induced by Human Technological Activities and the Related Seismic Hazard workshop was held at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, organized by the University of Pretoria Natural Hazard Centre and Department of Geology, and the European Plate Observing System Thematic Core Service for Anthropogenic Hazards (EPOS TCS AH). The workshop was delivered by: Prof. Beata Orlecka-Sikora, Prof. Stanisław Lasocki and Dr. Łukasz Rudziński from the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences and Prof. Andrzej Kijko from the University of Pretoria. The workshop was attended by 22 undergraduate and PhD students of geology and mining.

During the workshop, the participants were familiarized with the technologies used in the exploitation of georesources that can induce seismicity, and with the mechanisms of impact on the rock mass. Participants learned about anthropogenic seismicity properties and monitoring techniques. Much attention was devoted to presenting to the participants the anthropogenic seismic hazard and some simpler methods for assessing and mitigating this hazard. The social and economic impact of induced seismicity were also discussed. A large and important part of the workshop was practical training conducted on the EPISODES EPOS TCS AH platform that integrates research infrastructures of geophysical anthropogenic hazards. Through these activities, participants gained basic hands-on experience in analyzing and interpreting seismic data to assess the risks evoked by man-made seismicity.

After the workshop, participants prepared the assessment report in which they highly appreciated their participation in the course. To read the whole report, please open the attached PDF file.

Post-doc positions at Luleå University of Technology in Mining Seismicity and Seismic Hazard

Duties of the postdoctoral employment position:

A Post doctor will be involved in research within MRE, related to data analysis in order to define suitable proxies for stress changes and methodology for time-dependent seismic hazard in mines taking into account the stress changes, and to develop a tool for medium- to long-term-seismic hazard. The methodologies and tools will be applied on selected cases in Swedish mines.

Postdoctoral employment for two years with placement in Luleå. Starting date is as soon as possible in 2023. Details at

Duties of the postdoctoral scholarship position:

We offer a stimulating and dynamic research environment with an extensive national and international network along with interesting, exciting research projects. A post doctor will have great freedom to define the own research activities and will be given the opportunity to present and discuss research results nationally and internationally.

Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Sciences presents workshop in Pretoria, South Africa

The Department of Geology and Natural Hazard Centre cordially invites you to a workshop. This course will introduce participants to the problem of seismicity associated with geo-resources exploitation. We will discuss different geo-resource exploitation technologies that may induce seismicity and the mechanisms of interaction between technological activity and the rock mass. We will determine the necessary conditions to identify earthquakes as induced, triggered, or natural. Participants will learn about the vital properties of anthropogenic seismicity. They will also learn what kind of scientific tools may be applied to assess the hazard they pose. Finally, they will learn about the international collaborative undertakings for research into anthropogenic seismicity. Additionally, the course will provide information concerning data typical for seismological studies in anthropogenic seismicity.

After the course, the participants will be familiar with seismic catalogues and seismic monitoring. We will discuss which information is included in a standard catalogue and how a catalogue can be used in seismic hazard analysis. Most of the below topics involve hands-on activities using the EPISODES platform EPOS Thematic Core Service Anthropogenic Hazards.

Space is limited and booking is essential:

The workshop is co-financed by the program of the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Poland, "Supporting the participation of Polish research teams in international projects research infrastructure"
