Short description

Flex array deployment in Wabash Valley seismic zone. The Wabash seismic zone is an intraplate seismic zone in the middle of the continent that has received little attention despite several magnitude 4.5-5+ events in the past 50 years. The seismic structure and many basic characteristics remain unknown. The experiment will comprise a line of 45 broad band instruments across the valley and three 9 component short period phased arrays to probe both the physical structure and the levels of background seismicity occurring in this enigmatic feature.
