thesis / dissertation description
"This research program was aimed at supporting studies of earthquake hazard assessment in Missouri. It entertained objectives related to improving earthquake hazard assessment techniques through the investigation of recently discovered paleoliquefaction features (clastic sand dikes intruding fine-grained stratum) along the Meramec River south of St. Louis, MO and near Dexter in the southeastern part of the state."--Abstract, page iii.
