USGS en USGS Improving Understanding of New Madrid Fault Line <p>USGS Scientists Bill Ellsworth and Oliver Boyd join Kate Lochte on Sounds Good to speak about regional work involving earthquakes and the New Madrid Fault Line. Ellsworth’s research says injection-induced earthquakes are more prevalent than fracking induced earthquakes. Boyd explains the Missouri Bootheel aeromagnetic survey going on now, tracking seismic activity on certain areas of the fault and furthering research to learn about the faults and to better predict future earthquakes.</p><p> Thu, 18 Jul 2013 20:11:38 +0000 Kate Lochte 33191 at USGS Improving Understanding of New Madrid Fault Line New Madrid Airborne Survey <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The U.S. Geological Survey is conducting low-level flights across sections of the New Madrid earthquake seismic zone.
