Data and Tools

Science Datasets

The data collected and the techniques used by USGS scientists should conform to or reference national and international standards and protocols if they exist and when they are relevant and appropriate. For datasets of a given type, and if national or international metadata standards exist, the data are indexed with metadata that facilitates access and integration.

U.S. Seismic Hazard Maps - 2008 Edition

The 2008 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Seismic Hazard Maps display earthquake ground motions for various probability levels across the United States and are applied in seismic provisions of building codes, insurance rate structures, risk assessments, and other public policy. This update of the maps incorporates new findings on earthquake ground shaking, faults, seismicity%2

Open Source Seismic Hazard Analysis Software Framework (OpenSHA)

OpenSHA is an effort to develop object-oriented, web- & GUI-enabled, open-source, and freely available code for conducting Seismic Hazard Analyses (SHA). Our goal is to provide a framework where any arbitrarily complex (e.g., physics based) earthquake-rupture forecast, ground-motion, or engineering-response model can “plug in” for analysis without having to c

Precipitation, Pore-pressure, and Extensometer Measurements from area above the 1997 Woodway landslide, Snohomish County, Washington

On January 15, 1997, a landslide of approximately 100,000-m 3 from a coastal bluff swept five cars of a freight train into Puget Sound at Woodway, Washington, USA, 25 km north of downtown Seattle. The landslide resulted from failure of a sequence of dense sands and hard silts of glacial and non-glacial origin, including hard, jointed clayey silt that rarely fails in natural slopes
