The Human-induced Earthquake Database, HiQuake, is a comprehensive record of earthquake sequences postulated to be induced by anthropogenic activity. It contains over 700 cases spanning the period 1868–2016. Activities that have been proposed to induce earthquakes include the impoundment of water reservoirs, erecting tall buildings, coastal engineering, quarrying, extraction of groundwater, coal, minerals, gas, oil and geothermal fluids, excavation of tunnels, and adding material to the… Expand
HiQuake : The Human-Induced Earthquake Database.
ABSTRACT HiQuake —The Human‐Induced Earthquake Database is the most complete database of anthropogenic projects proposed, on scientific grounds, to have induced earthquake sequences. It is freelyExpand
Induced Seismicity
The ability of fluid-generated subsurface stress changes to trigger earthquakes has long been recognized. However, the dramatic rise in the rate of human-induced earthquakes in the past decade hasExpand
Developments in understanding seismicity triggered by hydraulic fracturing
As recently as 2015, it was common in the scientific literature to find assertions that the risk of triggering a damaging earthquake by hydraulic fracturing (HF) — an industrial process whereExpand
Addressing the risks of induced seismicity in subsurface energy operations
Shale gas could help address the insatiable global demand for energy. However, in addition to risks of environmental pollution, the risk of induced seismicity during the hydraulic fracturing processExpand

Abstract Induced seismicity associated with underground space creation and resource extraction has become a matter of global concern. However, our ability to predict and mitigate anthropogenicExpand
A process-based approach to understanding and managing triggered seismicity.
TLDR
This work reports the development, testing and implementation of a multidisciplinary methodology for managing triggered seismicity using comprehensive and detailed information about the subsurface to calibrate geomechanical and earthquake source physics models and validate these models by comparing their predictions to subsequent observations made after calibration.
