New USGS Maps Identify Potential Ground-Shaking Hazards in 2017

New U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maps identify potential ground-shaking hazards in 2017 from human-induced and natural earthquakes in the central and eastern United States (CEUS). This is the second consecutive year both types of hazards are forecasted, as previous USGS maps only identified hazards from natural earthquakes. This research recently was published in Seismological Research

Remote Real-Time Monitoring of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations

Over the last 25 years, deep-water oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico has increased significantly. With the move into greater water depths and with deeper wells being drilled, operations can experience higher pressures, increased temperatures, and greater uncertainty. A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends how
