A New Way Of Maximum Magnitude Estimate for Induced Seismicity - Chaos
KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!

Traffic Light Systems (TLS) for induced seismicity by underground injections traditionally rely on magnitude thresholds. The choice of these thresholds is debated and found inappropriate, with most recent 2020 fashion proposing very low thresholds based on empirical observations.

In this session, Dr. Leo Eisner will demonstrate that these observations can be explained as order of statistics and show how this theory can be used for TLS.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Dr. Leo Eisner
President @Seismik s.r.o.
Leo Eisner graduated from the Charles University of Prague with MSc. degree in Physics (Geophysics) in 1994 and received his Ph.D. from California Institute of Technology in Geological and Planetary Sciences in 2001. He spent six years as a Senior Research Scientist with Cambridge Schlumberger Research where he filed five patents and issued numerous publications. He joined MicroSeismic, Inc. in 2008 and was promoted to the Chief Geophysicist in 2009. In 2010 he has accepted honorary position of Purkyne Fellow at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague. He is founder and president of seismic service company Seismik s.r.o. He is a Continuous Education lecturer for SEG and EAGE on microseismicity. His papers cover a broad range of subjects, including the seismic ray method, finite-difference methods, seismological investigations of local and regional earthquakes and microearthquakes induced by hydraulic fracturing, etc. He has lead/advised three Ph.D. and six MSc. theses.
