Puterman, this is for you. We may not agree or see eye to eye on some things, but you will notice I treated you in a much more civil manner in this reply than you treated me in your reply. We can compare data and learn from each other if we are civil to each other. Can you do that?
In all, there have been several hundred events of Magnitude 1 and larger; only a small fraction of the entire sequence has been reviewed There have been 1000's of smaller magnitude events.
Following the deep sequence, in 2004 and 2005 earthquake activity has continued at 15 - 10 km depth, more typical depths for earthquakes in the Tahoe area, and may represent degasing or fluids from dike injection event triggering earthquakes at mid-crustal depths
If so, I will offer to e-mail both files to anyone who wants them.
My recent interest has been mostly the states, so I haven't been following worldwide hot spots as closely. As far as I know the known fracking areas are in northeast Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. The rest are for the most part pure seismic. At least I haven't seen any data to the contrary, especially the clusters on the map I posted and the quakes in the north east states.
Also, the number of permits doesn't tell the whole picture, he said.
The state doesn't count oil and gas permits separately, plus oil and gas often can be produced from the same well. In addition, horizontal drilling methods mean one well can be used to prospect a wider area, reducing the number of wells needed.
