Geosfera is an annual workshop aimed at geophysics for Earth Sciences students of various fields. Geosfera 2019 workshop was organised by Students Scientific Group PREM from Faculty of the Earth Sciences at University of Silesia. It took place in a beautifully located European Centre For Geological Education of University of Warsaw in Korzecko quarry near Chęciny. This year, TCS AH prepared the anthropogenic seismicity workshop dedicated for students. It covered the basics of the anthropogenic seismicity research concepts and the IS-EPOS platform (tcs.ah-epos.eu) training. During two days of the workshop students were able to learn how to calculate basic statistical parameters of seismic catalog and how to perform time-dependent hazard analysis in induced seismicity cases. Basics of the physical description of seismic process was also presented with examples and exercises covering location of the events, focal mechanism, moment magnitude calculations and spectral parameters estimations. Students were satisfied with the possibility to work on real data cases and the opportunity to tackle the scientific challenges similar, which they might face in the future.
