Earthquake Resources

Sand blows in the field

CERI seeks to understand the puzzling absence of all but the most minor topographic manifestations of the New Madrid seismic zone earthquakes, by refining and blending techniques from geology, archaeology, civil engineering and soil science. This evolving multidisciplinary process, now joined by investigators from several institutions, is beginning to unravel the earthquake history of the region, putting the present earthquake hazard in clearer perspective.
