Deep faulting and structural reactivation beneath the southern Illinois Basin

The investigation of deep fault structure and seismogenesis within "stable" continental interiors has been hindered by the paucity of detailed subsurface information and by low levels of seismicity. Outstanding seismotectonic questions for these areas include whether pre-existing structures govern t... Full description
