Scientists Discuss Earthquakes

Earthquake Info

Jan. 13, 2016: State will begin to install earthquake monitors in the spring
(Ft. Worth Star-Telegram)

* * *

At the recent annual American Geophysical Union meeting,  Southern Methodist University (SMU) scientists reported they believe the Dallas/Irving quakes have been triggered by human activity. They said they have not determined causation. The seismologists continue to study data from 11 seismometers located in Irving and Dallas.

The City of Irving continues working closely with the University of Texas Austin’s Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) as well. Last session the legislature allocated $4.47 million for the TexNet Seismic Monitoring Program, which the BEG will lead and will include seismologists from across the state. The BEG has hired staff, all of whom will be in place in early January. The seismic network is expected to be deployed soon thereafter.

There is no fracking in Irving, and there are no wastewater injection wells located here. For more information on the American Geophysical Union meeting click hereRead on...
