Researchers Identify Geological Event Behind Mysterious Crack In Michigan Forest
The state of Michigan is considered aseismic because it doesn't typically experience earthquakes. So when a strange, one-magnitude quake left a large crack on Michigan's Menominee Forest in 2010, residents and scientists were all baffled.
About six years later, geologists believe they have now identified what the geological event was inside the Menominee Forest. In a new study, a team from Michigan Technological University attempted to find out how the mysterious crack possibly formed.
