AbstractThe Induced Seismicity Research (ISR) project has a national scope with team members from NRCan offices in Sidney, Ottawa, and Quebec City. The Project establishes close collaboration with both public and private sectors, including provincial and local governments, crown corporations, professional organizations, and academia, to address critical knowledge gaps in the source process of induced earthquakes and to provide observation-based science to improve regulations on the development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources.
Key accomplishments during 2020-2021 include: Adoption of research results into the regulatory framework of induced earthquakes in BC; Publications of research results on source characteristics of significant induced earthquakes in western Canada; Development of innovative methodologies for detection and location of repeating earthquakes and precise earthquake focal depths; Enhanced injection-induced earthquakes (IIE) monitoring for major shale gas basins in BC and AB.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The goal of the Environmental Geoscience program (EGP) is to distinguish the environmental effects of natural resource development from those produced by natural processes, and to develop new approaches to support the sustainable use and development of Canada's natural resources through informed decision-making. The ultimate outcome of EGP is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of Canadian environmental regulation and oversight. By developing innovative geoscience for environmental stewardship, as well as increasing public and private sector access to research findings, decision-makers have a greater capacity and are more empowered to carry out and review environmental assessments. This SP highlights the 5 public presentations provided on May 11, 2021 as well as all updates from all projects under the EGP.
