State-of-the-Art for Assessing Earthquake Hazards in the United States: Report 19, The Evidence for Reservoir-Induced Macroearthquakes
Description: Partial abstract: "The published evidence of reservoir-induced macroearthquakes is critically reviewed. The evidence is partitioned into three types: (a) evidence of a post-impoundment increase in seismicity, (b) correlation evidence that is composed of a plot of a reservoir variable and a seismicity variable and, in most cases, an auxiliary variable, time, and (c) evidence based on the slope of the magnitude-frequency relationship (b value evidence)."
