This theme introduces the processes leading to seismicity within the Groningen gas field and outlines the key parameters of geotechnical engineering related to earthquakes.

After these lectures you will for instance be able to explain the processes leading to seismicity within the Groningen gas field and outline the key parameters of geotechnical engineering related to earthquakes. And you will be able to recognise the relevance of the shallow subsurface in Groningen related to the induced earthquakes.
