• Dynamic links between short-term deformation and long-term tectonics: a finite element study 

    Luo, Gang, 1977- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Geodetic and geological data for crustal deformation are significantly different in many places. This discrepancy may indicate different strain rates in the geological past, or simply reflect the timescale-dependent behavior ...
  • Fault evolution and earthquakes: a finite element study 

    Li, Qingsong, 1975- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    The New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) in central United States is a good example of intraplate seismicity, which cannot be readily explained by the plate tectonics theory and remains poorly understood. I have developed a 3D ...
  • Induced seismicity in Carbon and Emery Counties, Utah 

    Brown, Megan (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    Utah is one of the top producers of oil and natural gas in the United States. Over the past 18 years, more than 4.2 billion gallons of wastewater from the petroleum industry have been injected into the Navajo Sandstone, ...
