BAD NEWS for Oil Companies!
Long Waves of Seismic Activity Striking Alaska
Large swarms of low to medium strength quakes have been striking Alaska since early February.
The current seismicity in the region could translate into enhanced volcanism in the region or very large eruptions from Alaska’s more active volcanoes.
Both the ongoing seismicity and the prospect of enhanced volcanic activity in Alaska bode ill for the oil companies that are operating in the face of the fragile ecosystems in the region.
