Further Reducing Injections of Oilfield Wastewater Underground Can Prevent Larger Earthquakes

Virginia Tech

The new study shows that locations that experienced earthquakes are tied in proximity and timeliness to mass waste water injection sites. Further, the study indicates that tracking annual data on the injection well locations can help predict how corresponding earthquake activity will change. This new finding builds on previous studies showing that earthquake activity increases when wastewater injections increase.

Dark Fiber: Using Sensors Beneath Our Feet to Tell Us About Earthquakes, Water, and Other Geophysical Phenomenon

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown for the first time that dark fiber – the vast network of unused fiber-optic cables installed throughout the country and the world – can be used as sensors for detecting earthquakes, the presence of groundwater, changes in permafrost conditions, and a variety of other subsurface activity.

Tests Identify Onset of Out-of-Plane Buckling for Slender Wall Boundaries Subjected to Earthquake Loading

American Concrete Institute (ACI)

Analysis to evaluate the onset of global instability under tension/compression load shows that the onset of buckling can be identified using either a proposed buckling theory or computer simulations.

Raton Basin Earthquakes Linked to Oil and Gas Fluid Injections 

University of Colorado Boulder

A rash of earthquakes in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico recorded between 2008 and 2010 was likely due to fluids pumped deep underground during oil and gas wastewater disposal, says a new University of Colorado Boulder study.
