Abstract:


The fault activity in the area surrounding a nuclear power plant is crucial and critical for site selection. This study aims to analyze the fault activity in the surrounding sea areas of the Cang-nan nuclear power plant. The strata information is obtained by both a high-resolution multi-channel seismic survey and a single-channel seismic survey. Based on the processed seismic data, the seismic profiles are interpreted by combining the regional tectonic background and the exploration data from the neighboring nuclear power plant. Seven seismic reflection interfaces are obtained by using the seismic stratigraphy method. According to the active fault criterion, no fault is found in the Quaternary sedimentary layer, indicating that no breakpoint exists. The results show that there is no Quaternary active fault in the concerning area of the Cang-nan nuclear power plant (<25 km) and the site can meet the requirements of the industry standard.
