2018 United States (Lower 48) Seismic Hazard Long-term Model

The 2018 Update of the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model defines the potential for earthquake ground shaking for various probability levels across the conterminous United States and is applied in seismic provisions of building codes, insurance rate structures, risk assessments, and other public policy. The updated model represents an assessment of the best available science in earthquake...

USGS Streamgaging Network

The USGS Groundwater and Streamflow Information Program supports the collection and (or) delivery of both streamflow and water-level information for more than 8,500 sites and water-level information alone for more than 1,700 additional sites. The data are served online—most in near realtime—to meet many diverse needs.

San Francisco Bay Area – SF Peninsula (BALT4) Site near Pacifica, CA

Recent Conditions

The instruments for this site were installed in the winter of 2012 and are used to monitor and detect changes in local conditions.  Soil water content and ground water pressure are monitored at two nests on the same hillslope.  Data for the site include:

San Francisco Bay Area – SF Peninsula (BALT3) Site near Brisbane, CA

Recent Conditions

The instruments for this site were installed in the summer of 2011 and are used to monitor and detect changes in local conditions.  Soil water content and ground water pressure are monitored at two nests on the same hillslope.  Data for the site include:

Alaska

Probabilistic seismic hazard maps have been prepared for Alaska portraying ground motion values (peak ground acceleration and spectral amplitude at periods of 0.2, 0.3 and 1.0 seconds) at probabilities of exceedance of 2% and 10% in 50 years. Preparation of these maps followed the same general strategy as that followed for the U.S.G.S. seismic hazard maps of the contiguous United States,...

Drivers and Impacts of North Pacific Climate Variability

Climate model forecasts indicate an increase in extreme hydrologic events, including floods and droughts, for California and the western U.S. in the future. To better understand what the consequences of this future change in climate may be, USGS scientists are studying the frequency, magnitude, and impacts of past hydroclimate variability and extremes in the region. This project produces well-...

Managed Areas

A delineation of managed areas (Federal, State, tribal, and military lands) from the USGS National Atlas was overlaid on the topographic change inventory. Note that this representation of managed lands is from a small-scale map source and does not include all Federal lands, while others are generalized. About 11 percent of the change polygons fall within the general boundaries of the managed...
