Data Release for Additional Period and Site Class Data for the 2018 National Seismic Hazard Model for the Conterminous United States

The updated 2018 National Seismic Hazard Model includes new ground motion models, aleatory uncertainty, and soil amplification factors for the central and eastern U.S. and incorporates basin depths from local seismic velocity models in four western U.S. (WUS) urban areas. These additions allow us, for the first time, to calculate probabilistic seismic hazard curves for an expanded set

Map of slope-failure locations in Puerto Rico after Hurricane María

In Puerto Rico, tens of thousands of landslides, slumps, debris flows, rock falls, and other slope failures were triggered by Hurricane María, which made landfall on 20 September 2017. “Landslide” is used here and below to represent all types of slope failures. This dataset is a point shapefile of landslide headscarps identified across Puerto Rico using georefer

2016 Mw 6.0 Petermann Ranges earthquake, Australia: Pre- and post-earthquake digital elevation models

We generated digital elevation models (DEMs) using pre- and post-event in-track stereo 0.5 m resolution panchromatic Worldview 1 and 2 images (©2019, DigitalGlobe) using the Surface Extraction from TIN-based Searchspace Minimization (SETSM) software [Noh and Howat, 2015] running on the University of Iowa Argon supercomputer (Table S1). The post-event DEMs exhibit alon

Calibration Coefficients for the U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model and Depth to Water Table

The U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model (NCM) is being developed to include spatially varying estimates of site response in seismic hazard assessments. Primary outputs of the NCM are continuous velocity and density profiles from the Earth’s surface to the mantle transition zone at 410 km depth for each location on a 1-kilometer grid across the conterminous United States.
