USGS Improving Understanding of New Madrid Fault Line
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.
