WELCOME TO GREEN DRINKS 2015!
On Wednesday, February 25 at 6 pm Michael Hamburger, Professor of Geological Sciences, Geophysics, Seismology and Tectonics, will present a program entitled “Frack, Rattle and Roll!”. Hamburger will explore the peculiar phenomenon of “induced seismicity”, earthquakes that are triggered by human activity. Though we have long considered earthquakes to be the result of deep-seated Earth processes that are far out of reach of human activity, there is increasingly strong evidence that a variety of human actions—from mining to building dams and exploiting oil and gas reservoirs—can result in high levels of earthquake activity. In this Green Drinks presentation, we’ll explore the implications of this new type of seismic activity for earthquake hazards in the U.S. and for the development of energy resources worldwide.
