A. McGarr Maximum magnitude earthquakes induced by fluid injection Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth 119

Version of Record online: 4 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013JB010597

Key Points

  • The maximum magnitude of earthquakes induced by fluid injection can be capped
  • The upper-bound seismic moment is proportional to the volume of injected fluid
  • The largest fluid-induced earthquakes are caused by deep injection of wastewater
