State Will Begin to Install Earthquake Monitors in the Spring

Researchers hope to begin locating a network of seismographs by March to help determine what’s causing the earth to move across the state, including under North Texas. Scott Tinker, director of the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology, on Tuesday said a vendor for providing the equipment has been selected and a new project director, Alex Savvaidis, a researcher who did similar work for the Greek government, will start in February.
