    Collection Overview: This dataset is intended for researchers interested in active tectonics and earthquake hazards research in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The target areas were developed and defined by USGS scientists in collaboration with colleagues working in this region. The target areas are: the Blytheville Arch, the Meeman-Shelby lineament, the Reelfoot scarp and the northern New Madrid area. The data collection and processing were purchased by the U.S. Geological Survey using funds provided via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
