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 http://wkms.org USGS Improving Understanding of New Madrid Fault Line
