Induced seismicity

As industrial projects have expanded, and new technologies become available, we have seen a sharp rise in both the frequency and scale of human-induced earthquakes. Whilst this provides an opportunity to learn about the processes that underlie these events, it also highlights the need for careful monitoring and regulatory policies. This Collection invites original research on induced seismicity, and the tools we use to monitor and predict these events.
