WESSELOO, J.; WOODWARD, K.  and  PEREIRA, J.. Grid-based analysis of seismic data. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2014, vol.114, n.10, pp.815-822. ISSN 2411-9717.

Quantitative seismology is an important tool for investigating mine-induced seismicity and the quantification of the seismic rock mass response. The spatio-temporal interpretation of seismic data within an ever-changing three-dimensional mining environment provides some challenges to the interpretation of the rock mass response. A grid-based approach for the interpretation of spatial variation of the rock mass response provides some benefits compared with approaches based on spatial filters. This paper discusses a grid-based interpretation of seismic data. The basic methods employed in the evaluation of the parameter values through space are discussed and examples of applications to different mine sites given.

Keywords : quantitative seismology; mine induced seismicity; rock mass response; spatial evaluation.
