Image Credit: DEVELOPThe Wabash Seismic Zone (WSZ) project is aimed at assessing a stress-accumulation deficit in the WSZ. Doing so will allow seismologists to more accurately map earthquake hazard maps for the area, and help engineers, community leaders, and others to prepare for the next potential geologic hazard in the Midwest.
