Mean seismic magnitude against mean pressure drop in all the domain (circle symbols, lower x-axis) and at the well (square symbols, upper x-axis). Each colour represents a different segment size, ranging from 30 to 80 m. Pressure drops were not observed in models with length size lower than 30 m. The black dashed curve indicates the general tendency of pressure drops measured in all the domain, while the grey dashed curve represents the general tendency of pressure drops at the well. The dashed area indicates the range of pressure drops and seismic events observed during stimulation in the Rittershoffen reservoir (Meyer et al. 2017)
