In a world where the interaction between industrial activities and the natural environment continues to grow, the importance of understanding and preventing the associated risks is paramount. Seismic and microseismic measurement is a state-of-the-art solution for monitoring and anticipating risks in both industrial and natural contexts.
Industrial risks: definition and prevention
Industrial risks arise from human activities. In our case, these include the injection or extraction of fluids, or the exploitation or production of cavities. If poorly managed, these operations can induce earthquakes or ground movements that would not have occurred naturally, transforming a potential natural phenomenon into an industrial risk. Effective microseismic monitoring is essential to prevent such risks.
Natural hazards: understanding and anticipating
Tectonic earthquakes are a typical example of natural hazards. The rapid spread of information on the occurrence of an earthquake can serve as an early warning system, enabling action to be taken before the tremor itself spreads. Natural hazards also include landslides and other gravitational instabilities, which can be intensified by human activity and climate change.
Microseismic: essential monitoring
Microseismic monitoring enables us to monitor and anticipate seismic phenomena, whether natural or industrial, in order to minimize their human impact. It is an invaluable tool for acting proactively in the face of risk, and for implementing effective preventive measures.
The importance of a tailored approach to risk management
To deal effectively with these risks, whether natural or industrial, it is essential to use appropriate tools designed in line with the prevention and protection objectives they are intended to serve.
