The fault system responsible for New Madrid seismicity has generated temporally clustered very large earthquakes in A.D.

The NMSZ consists of four major arms of seismicity centered in the central United States and is one of the few places of concentrated earthquake activity far from a major plate boundary.

Earthquake activity in the New Madrid Seismic Zone in the central United States does not seem to be slowing down.

In a new study published in the journal "Science," seismologists Morgan Page and Susan Hough of the U.S. Geological Survey investigate whether current quakes in the region could be aftershocks of large earthquakes that occurred years earlier. New Madrid has had: (M or greater) 1 earthquake in the past 24 hours 3 earthquakes in the past 7 days; 9 earthquakes in the past 30 days; earthquakes in the past days.

New Madrid Seismic Zone Catastrophic Planning Project According to current scientific understanding, the New Madrid Seismic Zone is capable of producing damaging earthquakes at any time. The earthquakes of were estimated to be between a M and occurred in an area that was sparsely populated.

RUSS and ANTHONY J. CRONE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER CCited by: New Madrid seismic zone seismicity is occurring along these rift faults primarily between depths of 4 and 14 km within the Cambrian and Precambrian section (Chiu et al., ; Pujol et al., ; Van Arsdale and TenBrink, ).

The seismically most active fault within the New Madrid seismic zone is the Reelfoot reverse fault that extends. Although, it is uncommon for major earthquakes to occur far away from active tectonic boundaries, earthquakes associated with the New Madrid seismic zone (NMSZ), an active earthquake zone extending from Cairo, Illinois, into Marked Tree (Poinsett County), Arkansas, have been some of the largest earthquakes to ever strike North America.We surveyed the area north of New Madris, Missouri, for prehistoric liquefaction deposits and uncovered two new sites with evidence of pre earthquakes.

At one site, located about 20 km northeast of New Madrid, Missouri, radiocarbon dating indicates that an upper sand blow was probably deposited after A.D. and a lower sand blow was deposited prior to A.D.
