Global Catalog of Calibrated Earthquake Locations

We produced a globally distributed catalog of earthquakes and nuclear explosions with calibrated hypocenters, referred to as the Global Catalog of Calibrated Earthquake Locations or GCCEL. This dataset currently contains more than 18,000 events in about 250 clusters distributed around the world. Also included are more than 2.7M arrival times observed at more than 18,000 stations. The term “c

Lidar point cloud, GNSS, and raster data from near St. Helena, CA, March 30 and August 1, 2017

Text files: These data are text files of GNSS survey points collected along a trace of the West Napa Fault Zone near Ehler?s Lane north of St. Helena, California. Data were collected to aid in paleoseismic investigation of the suspected fault strand and to characterize local geomorphology. Data were collected on March 31, and August 1, 2017 using a Leica Viva GS15 survey grade GPS. The data are de

Data Release for Additional Period and Site Class Data for the 2018 National Seismic Hazard Model for the Conterminous United States (ver. 1.1, February 2020)

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 of spectral

Data from Theodolite Measurements of Creep Rates on San Francisco Bay Region Faults, California

The data files (csv- and excel- formatted) need to be updated annually by appending records of each survey at each site to files retaining the same name each year. Thus these files simply need to be replaced each year with the up-to-date version. It is not necessary to retain prior versions because they become redundant. The USGS author (Lienkaemper) ideally should be able to upload these file ann

Data for "Serpentinite-rich Gouge in a Creeping Segment of the Bartlett Springs Fault, Northern California: Comparison with SAFOD and Implications for Seismic Hazard"

This report presents the mineral chemistry dataset that was used in a published study of serpentinite-rich gouge from an actively creeping trace of the Bartlett Springs Fault in northern California. The fault gouge consists of porphyroclasts of antigorite serpentinite, talc, chlorite, and tremolite-actinolite in a sheared matrix of the same materials. The compositions of spinels in the serpentinit

Waveform Data and Metadata used to National Earthquake Information Center Deep-Learning Models

These data were used to train the Machine Learning models supporting the USGS software release "NEIC Machine Learning Applications Software" (, and its companion publication in Seismological Research Letters "Leveraging Deep Learning in Global 24/7 Real-Time Earthquake Monitoring at the National Earthquake Information Center" (ht

Data Release for the 2016 East Bay Seismic Imaging Investigation of the Hayward Fault Zone

In October 2016, we acquired an approximately 15-km-long seismic profile along a linear transect across the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay area. Our goal was to image previously unknown strands of the Hayward Fault zone and to better delineate the structure and geometry of the main trace of the Hayward Fault. Our profile started near the southern border of San Leandro, California at the

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.

Summary of proposed changes to geologic inputs for the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) 2023, version 1.0

This data release documents proposed updates to geologic inputs (faults) for the upcoming 2023 National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM). This version (1.0) conveys differences between 2014 NSHM fault sources and those recently released in the earthquake geology inputs for the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) 2023, version 1.0 data release by Hatem et al. (2021). A notable difference between t

Displacement and strain field from the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes derived from analysis of WorldView optical satellite imagery (ver. 2.0, May 2021)

This Data Release contains co-seismic horizontal and vertical displacements of the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes derived from sub-pixel cross correlation of WorldView satellite optical imagery. Additionally, the dataset contains the 2-dimensionsal (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) surface strain fields, inverted from the surface displacements. Associated publication: Barnhart, W.D., Gold, R.D., Hollingsw

2020 Update to the Quaternary Fault and Fold Database for Washington State

This release is an update to the online "Quaternary fault and fold database" for Washington State. The online database was last updated for Washington in 2014 – this 2020 update includes newly identified and modified traces and geometries for on-shore faults gleaned from new peer-reviewed studies and mapping of active faults within the state of Washington. These data contain lines representing the

Updated Compilation of VS30 Data for the United States

VS30, the time-averaged shear-wave velocity (VS) to a depth of 30 meters, is a key index adopted by the earthquake engineering community to account for seismic site conditions. VS30 is typically based on geophysical measurements of VS derived from invasive and noninvasive techniques at sites of interest. Owing to cost considerations, as well as logistical and environmental concerns, VS30 data are
