Abstract

DESTRUCTIVE earthquakes following the filling of large reservoirs at Kremasta in Greece1 and at Koyna in India2,3 have revived interest in reservoir-induced seismicity. Seismologists are eager to learn what information may be gleaned about the details of earthquake mechanism, and engineers are concerned to locate structures in areas where the risk of damage by induced earthquakes is least.
