Underground wastewater disposal in the US linked to increase in earthquakes
The number of earthquakes of magnitude 3 or greater in the central and eastern US has increased significantly in recent years, from about 21 a year between 1967 and 2000, to over 300 between 2010 and 2012. Most of this increase seems to be linked to the deep injection of wastewater in underground wells, according to a recent review of seismic activity. In addition to natural causes, earthquakes ...
First research links California quakes to oil operations
A 2005 spate of quakes in California's Central Valley almost certainly was triggered by oilfield injection underground, a study published Thursday said in the first such link in California between oil and gas operations and earthquakes. Researchers at the University of California at Santa Cruz, the University of Southern California and two French universities published their findings Thursday in ...
Lab Impex confirms CAM performance under seismic conditions
Laboratory Impex Systems in alliance with qualification test experts Trac ,recently performed a further qualification procedure on their SmartCAM AB+ (Continuous Air Monitor) to demonstrate its physical integrity and functionality when subjected to simulated Seismic conditions. The Testing was carried out at the highly regarded Earthquake Engineering Laboratory, Bristol University. The ...
QuakeFinder Completes Major Expansion of Earthquake Sensor Network
QuakeFinder, a private research organization dedicated to development of a system for forecasting major earthquakes, today announced that it has completed a major expansion of its network of instruments designed to detect electromagnetic signals that precede earthquakes. The QuakeFinder network now consists of more than 75 instruments, mainly located in California, and with smaller installations ...

Preventing Human-Caused Earthquakes
While the earthquake that rumbled below Colorado’s eastern plains May 31, 2014, did no major damage, its occurrence surprised both Greeley residents and local seismologists. To some Greeley residents, the magnitude 3.2 earthquake felt like a large truck hitting the house. The earthquake happened in an area that had seen no seismic activity in at least four decades, according to a new ...

Hawaii volcano erupts causing concern for public health & safety
Explosive eruptions and noxious gas emissions at Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii this week have got scientists working around the clock to understand what will happen next and how to keep the public out of harm's way. Scientists are monitoring gas emissions and seismic activity at Kilauea, which on March 19 experienced its first explosive eruption since 1924. The volcano is ...
