Intraplate Seismicity in the Central U.S.

Research Initiatives

  1. Using the “traffic light system” (TLS) for testing hypotheses
  2. On-site monitoring of seismicity
  3. Analysis of the local geology that is relevant to the earthquake activity
  4. Analysis of mechanical properties of reservoirs rock (static and dynamic)
  5. Develop hypotheses to distinguish between induced and natural earthquakes
  6. Ground shaking modeling
  7. Develop and conduct an in-situ field experiment of induced earthquake in unpopulated area of OK
  8. Geo-mechanical modeling of induced seismicity based on mechanical properties and seismological observations
  9. InSAR analysis of subsidence/uplift
