AGI Critical Issues Webinar: Induced Seismicity in the Midcontinent

Please join us on Tuesday, April 7, when the American Geosciences Institute’s (AGI’s) Critical Issues Program (www.americangeosciences.org/critical-issues) will be hosting a the following free webinar on induced seismicity aimed at state legislative staff, federal congressional staff, state geological survey staff, and members of the geoscience community involved in societal impacts of geoscience.

Critical Issues Webinar:  Induced Seismicity in the Midcontinent

Date/Time:  April 7, 2015;  12:00-1:00pm U.S. Eastern time.

The webinar will provide current information about induced seismic activity in the United States, specifically in the mid-continent, and will include information on mitigation planning, the current state of seismic monitoring at the state level, and the challenges in communicating the science of the issue to the public and decision-makers.

Our speakers include:

  • Bill Ellsworth, U.S. Geological Survey
  • Rex Buchanan, Kansas Geological Survey
  • Austin Holland, Oklahoma State Seismologist, Oklahoma GeologicalSurvey

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Association of American State Geologists (AASG).
