Stream response to repeated coseismic folding, Tiptonville dome, New Madrid seismic zone


Active folding in the New Madrid seismic zone (NMSZ) forms the Tiptonville dome, a 15 km long and 5 km wide surface fold with up to 11 m of late Holocene structural relief. The fold is crossed by streams of varying size, from the Mississippi River to small floodplain streams. The aim of this paper is threefold : to determine the style and amount of response of small- and large-scale rivers to well-dated earthquakes in the Reelfoot Lake area; to further constrain the style and timing of surface folding produced by these earthquakes; and to partition the amount of deformation produced by individual events
