The PrESENCE project presents and tests a new paradigm of collaborative monitoring of geohazards in urban environments: we will obtain seismological observations using a large number of low cost internet-connected equipment together with strong involvement of local public authorities and citizens. The PrESENCE project focuses on seismic hazards induced by deep geothermal operations and their associated societal perception. This topic is becoming a major issue in the development of renewable energies that involve the subsurface as seismic hazards are of significant public concern and can have major socio-economic impacts. The PrESENCE project is based on our rich experience from the recent seismic crisis in Strasbourg, which culminated in the paroxysmal Dec 4, 2020 M3.6 earthquake that led to the closure of the deep geothermal energy Geoven site (Fonroche-Geothermie company). The breakthrough strategy at the heart of the PrESENCE project relies on the deployment of Dense Semi-permanent Seismic Networks (DSSN) using low-cost seismic stations (Raspberryshake ) installed in internet-connected buildings and operated by non-seismologists. This new network concept goes beyond the historical choice between sparse permanent networks and very dense but temporary networks that cannot facilitate long-term monitoring. DSSNs represent an opportunity for traditional seismic network operators (public research institutes or private companies) to benefit from a vast amount of complementary data. The PrESENCE project will characterize the impacts of this new network concept on operational seismic monitoring, subsurface imaging, temporal monitoring of subsurface properties, warning systems, and the estimation of sociological impacts on the perception of seismic risk.
