Distant quakes trigger tremors at US waste-injection sites

Distant quakes trigger tremors at US waste-injection sites
New York NY (SPX) Jul 12, 2013 - Large earthquakes from distant parts of the globe are setting off tremors around waste-fluid injection wells in the central United States, says a new study. Furthermore, such triggering of minor quakes by distant events could be precursors to larger events at sites where pressure from waste injection has pushed faults close to failure, say researchers. Among the sites covered: a set of inj ... morehttp://www.nuclearpowerdaily.com/reports/Distant_quakes_trigger_tremors_at_US_waste_injection_sites_999.html
