In addition to creating a detailed picture of the subsurface, the project installed a network of seismic monitors like this one. One concern of geothermal drilling is that it could lead to tremors, which has derailed geothermal projects in Europe and California. Technical project manager Michael Albrecht is confident that drilling at this site will not increase seismic activity, but the group installed monitors to collect data and demonstrate it.
