09.03.2018 - New open-access article on expert elicitation for induced seismicity of Enhanced Geothermal Systems

 The results of our international expert elicitation (N=14) on induced seismicity hazard and risk of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) are now available as open access in Environmental Research Letters. While eliciting subjective probabilities for M≥3 and M≥5 induced earthquakes for a given EGS plant, we have observed a vast diversity in quantitative expert judgements as well as underlying mental models. We thus conclude with implication for induced seismicity risk governance, given such diverse expert views .
