In the past year, about three-dozen earthquakes with a magnitude of 2.0 or higher have struck communities atop North Texas' gas-rich Barnett Shale. Most of the quakes hit months ago, though three of them rattled the Dallas-Fort Worth area in September, waking some residents from sleep. A 2.2-magnitude quake shook an area outside of Irving in this past October.

Recently Texas regulators tightened rules for wells that dispose of oilfield waste in response to the spate of earthquakes that have rattled North Texas.
Learn more about the relationship between hydraulic fracturing, fluid waste disposal, and earthquakes from UT experts Dr. Cliff Frohlich (earthquake seismologist) and Dr. Jon Olson (geomechanics expert) in the upcoming CPGE Webinar: Induced Seismicity, A Multidisciplinary Perspective.
