 Last week, thanks to the GERC’s Early Career Researchers Development Fund, I had the opportunity to work at the University of Buffalo, characterising the subsurface pore-pressure changes for the Woods County area (Oklahoma, USA). The latter represents a unique laboratory where wastewater injection, hydraulic fracturing and gas extraction activities have been taking place simultaneously for almost a decade. The analysis extends the previous study carried out on the superficial ground deformation characteristics and the patterns derived from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR); the results of which have been submitted to Geophysical Research Letters and are currently under review. The work is led by S. Grebby (University of Nottingham) and is co-authored by myself and other colleag…
