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.
The course presenters are Bill Ellsworth from the U.S. Geological Survey, Austin Holland from the Oklahoma Geological Survey, and Rex Buchanan from the Kansas Geological Survey.
Geoscience research is at the forefront of characterizing the earthquake risks associated with the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest. This course covers the science and its implications for policy decisions and resiliency efforts.
