    The identification of the seismogenic sources potentially responsible for such events remains problematic. Geomorphological factors related to the recent geological history of the Alps hinder the investigation on the seismogenic behaviour of the region. central U.S. sequence and the Charleston, South Carolina eathquake.

    Graben, described as a small northwest-trending structure in north-central peninsular Florida with an associated series of surficial normal faults paralleling it. This was proposed by Vernon () on the basis of lineations in aerial photographs and discrepancies in drill 59 () to extend Appalachian fault provinces along the length of the. As delineated by modern and historical seismicity, the most important seismic source zones affecting the eastern United States include the New Madrid and Wabash Valley seismic zones of the central U.S., the southern Appalachians and Charleston, South Carolina, areas in the southeast, and the northern Appalachians and Adirondacks in the northeast.

Identification of a northwest trending seismogenic graben near Charleston, South Carolina Technical Report Lennon, G Shallow stratigraphic drilling (to approximately 85 m) and gamma logging in the miezoseismal area of the Charleston, earthquake was used to map three Tertiary unconformities.

Results suggest the presence of a northwest extending graben lying between Charleston and Kiawah Island, SC. The 40 km long and 18 km wide graben is bounded on three sides by inferred, mappable. (4) The pattern of isoseismals of current felt earthquakes resembles the outline of the NW trending graben.

(5). Historical and other data suggest that both sources were active in Author: Pradeep Talwani. In south-central Connecticut, the Eastford lineament is truncated by a kmlong, northwest-trending fault zone, herein named the Bunker Hill fault zone, which is. The Bloomfield pluton, also characterized by pronounced magnetic and gravity highs, lies within the northwest-trending rift graben and may be much older than the COV.

An eight-station seismic network was installed in August in the epicentral area of the Charleston, South Carolina, earthquake, within and near the town of Summerville.

The Mesozoic Kachchh rift is located in the Gujarat state of northwestern India and far away from the active plate boundaries (), thus, this region can be classified as the intraplate region (Gupta et al., ).Occurrences of two M w ≥ earthquakes in anddistinguish the region as a unique intraplate zone of the world (Rajendran et al., ).

Identification of a Northwest Trending Seismogenic Graben Near Charleston, South Carolina. Based on shallow (to 85 m) drilling and gamma logging in the meizoseismal area, inferred a NW-trending graben lying between Charleston and Kiawah Island, South Carolina. 5) The Carolina seismic zone (CSZ) is best-known for the destructive (M ~ –) event that occurred near Charleston, South Carolina, on 31 August (Nuttli et al., ).

Paleoseismic studies indicate at least seven prehistoric earthquakes there in the past years (Obermeier et al.,Talwani and Cox, ). This book presents the characteristics and limitations of geological units, Cenozoic and geochronological concepts.

It studies landscape aspects developed from research in areas with proved Cenozoic tectonic activity, such as the Potiguar basin, located between the states of Ceara and Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.

In the final Reelfoot rift basement model (Fig. 6; Animation 1), we extend one of the Eastern Margin faults north to include a Quaternary fault scarp near Union City, Tennessee (Cox et al., ), extend the Western Margin fault north to include the current seismicity trend north of New Madrid, Missouri (Baldwin et al., ), and extend the.

The greatest seismic hazard in the southeastern United States is thought to be near Charleston, South Carolina.

Inan M earthquake caused widespread damage and liquefaction in a broad area. Recent studies of paleoliquefaction features indicate that earthquakes the size of the event occur about every years (52).

Charleston (South Carolina) earthquake, Aug at about 21h The epicentral area was situated near the northwest margin of the Owens Valley graben, in proximity to the northeastern end of the lengthy surface rupture related to the Lone Pine earthquake described above (Holden, ).

The Bresse Graben is a N-S trending.The January 1,MN (E[M] ) Kipawa earthquake is located near the epicenter and exhibits northwest-southeast-striking reverse faults that may be associated with northwest-trending lineaments under Lake Kipawa that have been interpreted as faults (Bent et al., ).The September 1 (August 31 local time),E[M]earthquake that occurred in the Charleston, South Carolina, area is the largest historical earthquake ever recorded in the Eastern United States.

This earthquake produced modified Mercalli intensity (MMI) X shaking in the epicentral area near Charleston, and was felt as far away as.
