The third largest dam in the world could be triggering earthquakes

The Ataturk Dam in southeastern Turkey, and the associated water levels in the reservoir is believed to be responsible for induced seismicity in the region, including a M=5.0 in 2008. Because water levels in the reservoir have dropped significantly over the last year, it is possible that yesterday’s M=5.2 event to the east of the dam was induced.
