Project Title: Natural, man-made and induced seismicity of Ireland: discrimination and hazard
Project Description: This project will develop new tools for the detection and location of seismic events in Ireland and for discrimination between natural earthquakes and man-made events, such as quarry blasts. It will produce a new database of Irish seismicity, to be disseminated through the Irish National Seismic Network (INSN) website.
