Evidence of reservoir triggered seismicity from seismic moment tensors south of Lake Oroville showing both DC and non-DC earthquake sources
LGS performed a preliminary seismic hazard assessment in Guinea as part of a pre-feasibility study for a project to develop the country's vast iron ore resources in the Simandou Range.
LGS has extensive experience in the design, procurement and operation of temporary earthquake monitoring networks to evaluate to potential for induced seismicity and characterize seismic sources for earthquake hazard analysis.
LGS evaluated earthquake activity in northwestern California to identify potential seismic sources capable of generating significant ground motion at several damsites as part of a seismic hazard analysis for the California Department of Water Resources.
A seismotectonic analysis of earthquakes in northern California was conducted by LGS to characterize the regional tectonics that drive local deformation.
The results of a seismotectonic analysis of earthquakes along the eastern margin of the Sierra Nevada has led to the development of a kinematic model of deformation that was used to assess the seismic hazard to several dams in northern California.
The seismotectonic setting for the Mono Basin region was analyzed by LGS to support the seismic hazard assessment of several dams in the region.
