This is a unique and valuable experience for those in industries at risk from earthquakes (transportation, planning, communications, logistics, utilities, government, equity and investment, insurance, and many others),professional geoscientists, first-responders, interested lay people, and students.


The field trip begins in the St. Louis area and includes Kaskaskia, Ill.; Ste. Genevieve and New Madrid, Mo.; Reelfoot Lake, Tenn.; as well as other sites in southern Illinois, southeast Missouri, and western Tennessee and Kentucky.


The route includes geological evidence of the geologic and earthquake history of the region, as well as sites important to the human stories of the 1811-12 New Madrid earthquakes.  The field-trip route is about 500 miles long, and will include two overnight stops.


Those who are interested in details about the 2018 Earthquake Insight Field Trip should contact Jeff Briggs at or Phyllis Steckel at

In the past, the annual Earthquake Insight Field Trips were subsidized by the US Geological Survey.  However in 2018, as in the past several years, professional geoscientists will volunteer their time and expertise to lead the event.


Continuing Education units (CEUs) may be available through the University of Missouri.
