Economic subareas of interest data for areas containing concentrated damage resulting from the April 18, 2018, HayWired earthquake scenario in the San Francisco Bay region, California

The data in this data release are comprised of one geospatial vector dataset and three tabular datasets related to the HayWired earthquake scenario, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hypothesized to occur on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. The geospatial vector data are a representation of identified economic subareas for use in selected analyses related to selecte

Estimated geospatial and tabular damages and vulnerable population distributions resulting from exposure to multiple hazards by the M7.0 HayWired scenario on April 18, 2018, for 17 counties in the San Francisco Bay region, California

This data release is comprised of geospatial and tabular data developed for the HayWired communities at risk analysis. The HayWired earthquake scenario is a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hypothesized to occur on the Hayward Fault on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. The following 17 counties are included in this analysis unless otherwise specified: Alameda, Contr

Surface Displacement Observations of the 2019 Ridgecrest, California Earthquake Sequence

Surface rupture associated with the 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake sequence includes the dominantly left-lateral and northeast-striking M6.4 rupture and dominantly right-lateral and northwest-striking M7.1 rupture. This data release includes surface-displacement observations of these ruptures made by teams of federal, state, academic, and private sector geologists between July and

Pre-existing features associated with active faulting in the vicinity of the 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake sequence

This dataset is composed of linear active tectonic and other relevant features (scarps, deflected drainages, and lineaments and contrasts in topography, vegetation, and ground color) mapped based on high-resolution topography, aerial/satellite imagery, and field observations. The mapping covers the area surrounding the 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake surface ruptures.

Field reconnaissance of ground failure triggered by shaking during the 2018 M7.1 Anchorage, Alaska, earthquake

These data present geolocated photographs, GPS tracks, and field-mapped ground failures collected during the USGS reconnaissance of ground failures following the 2018 M7.1 Anchorage Earthquake.

Lidar point cloud, raster, mapping, analysis, and photographic data for streambank erosion and related geomorphic change in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, California, USA

Landscape change in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, California, was characterized using data derived from four lidar surveys: one airborne survey in 2006 and three terrestrial surveys in 2016, 2017, and 2018. These surveys were used to generate a better quantitative understanding of changes associated with fluvial processes along the reach of the Tuolumne River where it cros

Data Release for the 2018 U.S. Geological Survey–California Geological Survey Fault-Imaging Surveys Across the Hollywood and Santa Monica Faults, Los Angeles County, California

We acquired multiple types of controlled-source seismic data across the Hollywood Fault in Hollywood, Calif., and the Santa Monica Fault in Beverly Hills, Calif., in May and June of 2018. We acquired two separate profiles across the Hollywood Fault, and from those data we can evaluate multiple seismic datasets and calculate seismic models including guided-wave data, tomographic VP dat

Data report for line 8 of the 2011 USGS seismic imaging survey at San Andreas Lake, San Mateo County, California

In June of 2011, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired high-resolution P- and S-wave seismic data across the mapped (Schussler, 1906) trace of the San Andreas Fault zone at San Andreas Lake in unincorporated San Mateo County, California. Our seismic survey consisted of seismic reflection, refraction, and guided-wave data along a 60-m-long profile. To acquire the reflection and refract

Data Report for Nodal Seismograph Recording at the Byerly Seismographic Vault, University of California, Berkeley, California

In September and October 2019, the USGS and UC Berkeley (UCB) deployed two nodal seismographs at the Byerly Seismographic Vault (station BRK), east of the UCB campus. One of the nodes was located immediately outside the vault, and the other was located within the vault, adjacent to a broadband seismometer. The objective of this deployment was to compare recordings of local earth

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.

High-resolution seismic imaging of the West Napa Fault Zone at Saintsbury Winery, Napa, California

In November 2016, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired high-resolution P- and S-wave seismic data across the surface trace of the West Napa Fault zone at Saintsbury Winery in Napa, California. We acquired seismic reflection, refraction, and guided-wave data along a 115-m-long profile across the known surface rupture zone of the West Napa Fault zone. To acquire the reflection and refractio
