Over the summer, I will be working with ten datasets that contain information on earthquakes that occurred in various places around the country (ten regions total). This information includes the magnitude of earthquakes, location of the earthquakes, time interval, fault orientation, and wellhead pressures from wells near the earthquake epicenters. The time interval in each of the regions is roughly from 2011-2013 when the data was gathered. Because of this, I don't have to start with raw data as different research articles have already compiled the data for me.
We had to contact some of the authors in order to get information we needed on some of the data if we could not find it within the paper. We will process these datasets in MATLAB to analyze any correlation between waste injection/hydraulic fracturing and induced seismicity. We will also use MATLAB to analyze tidal modulation of induced seismicity as well. GMT may be used for map making if needed.
