Induced Seismicity in the Mid-Continent

American Geosciences Institute

About This Course

This course provides information about induced seismic activity in the United States, specifically in the mid-continent. It includes information on mitigation planning, the state of seismic monitoring at the state level, and the challenges in communicating the science of the issue to the public and decision-makers.

This course is based on the AGI Critical Issues webinar "Induced Seismicity in the Mid-Continent" that was co-sponsored by the Association of American State Geologists (AASG).
