Seismic Network

The Seismic Network will provide cheaper and more accurate seismic monitoring of CCS in complex, ‘noisy’ ocean settings such as the Gippsland Basin. The network will allow a detailed understanding of the background seismicity, and coastal and ocean noise levels within the entire basin with a level of fidelity that is currently not possible in either the Gippsland or Otway Basins.  With the lead taken by the University of Melbourne, the Seismic Network will improve CO2CRC’s understanding of seismic activity at a lower cost with greater accuracy, and will provide data for the CarbonNet project, which is investigating the potential for a commercial-scale carbon capture and storage network in Gippsland.
