  • About | SCITS - Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity
    Greg Beroza Geophysics and Associate Professor Jack Baker Civil and Environmental Engineering The motivation for establishing this new program is to take advantage of the unique expertise at Stanford to address the variety of scientific and operational issues associated with the managing the risk posed by induced and triggered earthquakes As recognized by the recent report of the U S National Academy of Sciences incidents of induced and triggered earthquakes associated with energy industries have become increasingly common in the past few years Much of the recent concern involves activities related to fluid injection and hydraulic fracturing but there continues to be concern about geothermal energy development injection of carbon dioxide wastewater disposal fluid extraction and mining activities In this context we propose to establish an industrial affiliates program to help companies develop a better understanding of the science of induced and triggered earthquakes associated with different types of activities a context specific consensus risk management framework consensus risk management tool kits The public needs assurance that energy and mining related activities do not pose undue risk of injury or property damage that risk is being effectively managed by the industry and monitored by regulatory authorities and that information about
