In June of 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a high-resolution seismic survey at Edwards Air Force Base in Kern County, California. Seismic data were acquired using a DTCC SmartSolo 3-component nodal seismometer system ("node"), which continuously recorded at 2000 samples per second. Nodes were deployed 5 meters apart along a southwest-northeast trend to create an approximately 3-km-long linear profile. P-wave data were generated primarily using a 500-lb (227-kg) accelerated weight drop at each recording station. P-wave data were also generated at every 40 stations using downhole explosions, and fault-zone-guided-wave data were generated using explosive sources that were placed within a mapped trace of a nearby fault (Kramer Hills Fault zone), approximately 1 km southeast of the seismic profile. Shot gathers were created in SEG-Y format (Barry et al, 1975) by extracting several seconds of data from each node for each recorded shot time. This report provides the metadata needed to analyze the seismic data.
