About Us

The Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity is an industrial affiliates program on the topic of induced and triggered earthquakes. Ten Stanford Professors in the Departments of Geophysics, Energy Resource Engineering, Earth System Science and Civil and Environmental Engineering are involved in SCITS (see People).  They and their research groups are addressing a wide variety of scientific and operational issues associated with managing the risk posed by induced and triggered earthquakes. As recognized by the recent report of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, incidents of induced and triggered earthquakes associated with energy production have become increasingly important in recent years. |See More|
