Abstract/Description

In this study, a method presented by Oomman and Baise ( 2013) will be used to create a map of liquefaction potential in the New Madrid Fault Zone (NMFZ). This method uses several different images stacked together to create a single layer showing several different features. The researchers used the following features to create their layered image: Digital elevation Models (DEM), ground water table, land cover classification, geology, water index, and Normalized Difference Vegtation Index (NDVI). This method was tested on the NMFZ using the same input features. A liquefaction map created by the Illinois State Geological Survey was used to compare it to a finished map created by the above outlined method. This method should show a more accurate map of liquefaction potential for the NMFZ.
