What is the New Madrid Seismic Zone?
The NMSZ is an active intraplate seismic region where three earthquakes, probably larger than M7, produced ground motions that affected a significant portion of the central U.S. in 1811-1812. They caused widespread liquefaction, extensive damage, and disrupted commerce on the Mississippi River.
The NMSZ continues to pose a significant seismic hazard to the central U.S. We continue to study the region in an effort to better understand the seismic hazard and mitigate the damage that a future large earthquake would produce.
Current research projects include:
CERI has a dozen faculty researchers and several more Ph.D. research and support staff.
