Geoecological hazard monitoring in geodynamic interaction of subsoil use objects

On the basis of ideas about the critically stressed state of the Earth’s crust, a hypothesis is put forward about the nature of the remote interaction of objects of subsoil exploitation and the associated component of environmental hazard. From the condition that the Earth’s crust is in a kind of critically stressed state from the Earth’s surface to a certain depth, it is proposed to estimate the distance at which objects of subsoil exploitation can interact geodynamically. Under this assumption, the distance between geodynamically interacting objects can vary depending on the thickness of the critically stressed state layer in the Earth’s crust and reach tens or even hundreds of kilometers. The situation with the coal region Kuzbass is considered as an example. It is proposed to design geodynamic test sites to control geomechanical, geodynamic processes and the ecological situation at subsoil exploitation facilities taking into account the interaction zone of such facilities. The recommendations are aimed at improving environmental and industrial safety during the construction and operation of a production facility and infrastructure located in the zone of influence of the subsoil use facility.

Keywords: object of subsoil exploitation, critically stressed state of the Earth’s crust, geodynamic interaction, geodynamic testing ground, environmental safety.
