The increasing rate and magnitude of induced seismicity over the past decade has generated public interest and spurred research across a broad range of geoscientists and stakeholders. Here, induced seismicity is broadly defined to include earthquakes associated with geothermal exploration, hydrocarbon production, wastewater disposal, carbon sequestration, and gas storage. Innovations in energy technologies have led to rapid changes in how humans interact with and change the surface and subsurface and with increased earthquake rates come changes in earthquake hazard and risk. To understand and mitigate these changes over the past 10 yr, the scientific community produced over 10,000 peer‐reviewed articles...
