Abstract

Investigation on reservoir associated earthquake phenomena in western part of Thailand was carried out since early 1983. After impoundment of Khao Laem Reservoir in June 1984 earthquake events had been recorded by micro seismic network around reservoir area. Evaluation of seismic parameters and earthquake pattern and the focal mechanism solutions indicate the earthquakes were triggered by impoundment and the hypocentral distribution confirm the earthquake activities along the north east direction. Results obtained from investigation clearly differentiate the reservoir induced earthquakes phenomena from natural tectonic earthquakes.

Post Evaluation on Reservoir Triggered Seismicity of Khao Laem Dam
