2014 Earthquake Insight Field Trip

published Feb 7, 2014 12:56pm
Friday, March 28 – Sunday, March 30

The overall purpose of the 2014 Earthquake Insight Field Trip is to educate and reduce earthquake risk. The field trip route includes natural and man-made features, historic sites, and engineered structures that show a basic overview of the earthquake hazards and earthquake risks in the central US.

This field trip starts and ends in the St. Louis metro area. Along the way we will make about a half-dozen stops in southern Illinois, southeast Missouri, western Kentucky, and western Tennessee. We will see field evidence of past earthquakes on the New Madrid fault system and related earthquake source zones, as well as engineering projects and challenges unique to central US earthquake country.

The cost is $350 or $300 for students ($400 or $350 after March 14) and includes field-trip transportation; six meals; and two nights shared hotel room (private hotel available with $100 premium). University credits as well as PDHs are available through Northern Illinois University.
