The book ‘Microseismicity: a tool for reservoir characterization’ describes the principles of seismicity-based reservoir characterization and the main quantitative features of different types of induced microseismicity. It addresses different aspects of reservoir characterization and hydraulic fracturing and also the magnitude distribution of seismicity induced by borehole fluid injections.
