Arkansas Earthquake Center News - December 1998
Possible Liquefaction Feature Being Explored
A unique geologic feature located on the south shore of the Arkansas River near the I-430 bridge is being explored by the UALR Arkansas Center for Earthquake Education and Technology Transfer. There is a possibility that the feature is the result of liquefaction from an earthquake. The presence of a liquefaction feature would be significant in that the earthquake hazard for central Arkansas would need to be reassessed.
