U.S. Geological Survey
confirms: Human activity caused 5.7 quake in Oklahoma
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) issued a press release yesterday indicating that the magnitude 5.7 earthquake that struck Prague, Oklahoma
in 2011 was unintentionally human-induced.
The USGS claims that the magnitude 5.0 earthquake triggered by waste-water injection the previous day “trigger[ed] a cascade of earthquakes,
including a larger one, [which] has important implications for reducing the seismic risk from waste-water injection.”
I think the entire debate is now well settled. Nicely done.
