Some people have been abusing this web resource by claiming that it supports the claim that "fracking" which is properly called "hydrofracturing" induces earthquakes.
This is untrue. None of the the papers on this website investigates or supports the claim that hydrofracturing induces earthquakes.
All legitimate research has found no evidence of this. "Injection induced earthquakes" are NOT caused by hydrofracturing. Injection of fluids
for the purpose of waste disposal or well stimulation is NOT "fracking." Injection of fluids CAN induce earthquakes in some circumstances.
Hydrofracturing has NOT been found to induce earthquakes.
