LGCD: regional seismicity and ground motion associating underground hard rock mining

Seismicity induced by underground copper ore exploitation in mines located in the Legnica-Glogow Copper District (LGCD), southwestern Poland. Mines use a room and pillar exploitation system at the level from 0.6 to 1.3 km below the surface. Episode LGCD contains only seismic events recorded inside the seismic network.

Episode integrated into the framework of:

  • IS-EPOS project, Digital Research Space of Induced Seismicity for EPOS Purposes No. POIG.02.03.00-14-090/13
