Abstract The hypocenter locations of the larger and better recorded earthquakes of the New Madrid seismic zone are examined in order to determine how closely the hypocenters lie along planar surfaces, thus relating the foci to active fault sur-faces. For this purpose more than 500 earthquakes of the region have been selected for study, based on the number (7 or more) of observing stations used in the initial hypocenter location and on the quality of the P-wave onset. These events are relocated using a joint hypocenter-velocity-depth (JHVD) algorithm. The relocated earthquakes are separated geographically into three trends: ARK, the southwest trending zone from Caruthersville, Missouri, to Marked Tree, Arkansas; DWM, the northeast trending zone from New Madrid to Charleston, Missouri; and CEN, the central, left-stepping offset zone from
