Prior MSUM Geography student, Jacob Larson and Geosciences professors Dr. David Kramar and Dr. Karl Leonard published “A Geostatistical Analysis of Seismicity in Oklahoma Using Regression Trees and Neural Networks” in the Journal Physical Geography.

This research utilizes machine learning to establish relationships between wastewater injection sites associated with the shale-gas industry, and the prevalence of earthquake activity in Oklahoma. This manuscript is a testament to the robust research and work that MSUM students have accomplished. This manuscript was the result of Jacob’s Introduction to GIS (GEOS-307) course project.
