Short summary
During May 16-18, 2014, the ICDP Workshop on Scientific Deep Drilling in the Koyna region of western India was held in Koyna to review the progress made in the preparatory phase and the preparation of a full drilling proposal. 49 participants came from Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and USA. It was recommended to have two pilot and two main boreholes, hosting comprehensive sets of monitoring instruments to better comprehend reservoir-triggered earthquakes.
