Potential Seismic Risk Associated with Louisiana Wrench Faulting

Dates

Info Date

Summary

An overview of the middle Mesozoic zone of crustal weakness, caused by transform faulting in the north-central gulf coastal area, during plate separation and rifting, which may have become zones of subsequent tectonic adjustments, and the possible physical structural link between a known major, active earthquake zone -- the New Madrid -- and areas of recorded earthquakes. 45 pages Authors: Dave Meloy and Ron Zimmerman
