Structure and permeability: Geologic controls on induced seismicity at Nurek Reservoir, Tadjikstan, USSR
W. Leith, D.W. Simpson, W. Alvarez 1981 Geology v. 9, p. 440-444

Short article on the role of bedrock structure on the distribution of elevated pore pressure and reservoir induced seismicity. Excellent real-world example of pore pressure effects. Clear description of connection between local structure and regional tectonics.
