From Geo 101 something bothered me from the get go...sand....there is sand...and I mean lots of sand in a small area of Arkansas, "it should not be there" and after more research, I started noticing sand, when found in places not ment to be...are most often tale tell...signs of EQ and or volcanic activity. This is pretty much ground zero for the last swarm of quakes...the area of sand at least 20x20 mile area. To be more specific to the area I can get GE coord later...but its 3 miles west of where Caney river runs into the Buffulo river. I have a mutual friend there...they "Shipmans" own and opperate a camp ground and bed/breakfast type thing. Last I spoke to them they had two of their 4 cottages rented out to gov't officials.....EQ specialists. All the info. they can get from the gov't guy is that there is definately something worthy of further study here.
"From the report I just posted regarding mid-continental earthquakes.
"Now, new research from the University of Missouri suggests that inner-continental quakes such as China's may abide by a different set of rules than those that occur along plate boundaries."
"Along plate boundaries, small and moderate earthquakes that rupture along a particular fault lead to a build-up of stress along that same fault line, but mid-continent faults are connected to each other in a complex network, and a large earthquake along one fault will instead put pressure on a different fault."
