Practical needs of mining industries and geotechnique makes it necessary to provide long-term monitoring of stressed state in rock mass to prevent rock bursts, fall-downs etc. The normal practice is to use a dense instrumental network for detecting potentially dangerous locations of excessive local stress or deformation in a rock massif. However the efficiency of such networks seems to be rather low, as they produce a large number of false alarms while frequently missing real events.
