Post-shut-in behaviour of seismicity (diffusivity = 1.0 m2/s) calculated with CPT and RST with variable \(C_{\text{CPT}}\) and \(C_{\text{RST}}\) for pressure dropping to zero at 70 h after start of injection. Left panel (identical to Fig. 5, left panel) shows the CPT results for \(C_{\text{CPT}}\) (blue 1 kPa; green 5 kPa; red 10 kPa). Right panel shows the RST results for \(C_{\text{RST}}\) (blue 0.2 kPa; green 1 kPa; red 5 kPa). Note that with the proper choice of \(C_{\text{CPT}}\) and \(C_{\text{RST}},\) the post-shut-in behaviour can be made very similar
