Recent Advances in North American Paleoseismology

Full Title: Recent Advances in North American Paleoseismology and Neotectonics East of the Rockies
Editors: Randel Tom Cox, Martitia P. Tuttle, Oliver S. Boyd, and Jacques Locat
Description:
This volume focuses on the continental intraplate region of the United States and provides an update and overview of documented Quaternary faulting and paleoseismic liquefaction east of the Rocky Mountains, and of the application of these results to seismic hazard and risk assessments. Contributions include papers that describe zones of newly recognized Quaternary deformation such as the East Tennessee Seismic Zone, as well as reinterpretations of well-known areas such as the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The chapters make important contributions to the recognition of earthquake sources active during the Quaternary and assess the seismic hazards posed by these sources. This volume should interest a wide range of readers from geology, seismology, hazard assessment, and emergency management.
