Earthquake catalog (1568 to 2018) for the USGS National Seismic Hazard Model and Nuclear Regulatory Commission

The earthquake catalog was generated in August 2018 using the standard National Seismic Hazard Model methodology (Mueller, 2019) for the central and eastern United States. Pre-existing catalogs were merged, duplicate records were removed, the catalog was declustered, and induced earthquakes were removed. The final catalog contains 6802 records, M2.5–7.8, and extends from 1568 through July 2018.

Comprehensive Global Database of Earthquake-Induced Landslide Events and Their Impacts (ver. 2.0, February 2022)

Currently, there are many datasets describing landslides caused by individual earthquakes, and global inventories of earthquake-induced landslides (EQIL). However, until recently, there were no datasets that provide a comprehensive description of the impacts of earthquake-induced landslide events. In this data release, we present an up-to-date, comprehensive global database containing all literatu

Input for assessing the impact of noisy data on earthquake magnitude estimates derived from peak ground displacement measured with real-time Global Navigation Satellite System data

This data release complements Murray et al. (2023) which presents a framework for incorporating earthquake magnitude estimates based on real-time Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data into the ShakeAlert® earthquake early warning system for the west coast of the United States. Murray et al. (2023) assess the impact of time-dependent noise in GNSS real-time position estimates on th

High-resolution seismic data acquired near seismic station CE.57213 in Fremont, California

In September 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired high-resolution P- and S-wave data near seismic station CE.57213 in Fremont, California, approximately 100 m east of the mapped trace of the Hayward Fault. We acquired the seismic data to evaluate the time-averaged shear-wave velocity in the upper 30 m (VS30) and to better understand ground-shaking near the station CE.57213. The seismic data w

Data release for the lower seismogenic depth model of western U.S. earthquakes

A model of the lower seismogenic depth distribution of earthquakes in the western United States was developed to support models for seismic hazard assessment that will be included in the 2023 USGS National Seismic Hazard Model. This data release presents a recalibration using the hypocentral depths of events M>1 from the Advanced National Seismic System Comprehensive Earthquake Catalog from 198

High-resolution seismic data acquired at northern Ano Nuevo, California

The U.S. Geological Survey acquired high-resolution P- and S-wave seismic data across the Frijoles Fault strand of the San Gregorio Fault Zone (SGFZ) at northern Ano Nuevo, California in 2012. SGFZ is a right-lateral fault system that is mainly offshore, and prior studies provide highly variable slip estimates, which indicates uncertainty about the seismic hazard it poses. Therefore, the primary g

Data to accompany the study Quick and dirty (and accurate) 3D paleoseismic trench models using coded scale bars

This dataset provides supporting evidence for a method of generating geometrically accurate orthophoto mosaics of paleoseismic trenches using physical scale bars printed with coded targets. These data accompany a forthcoming study by Delano et al., 2021, Quick and dirty (and accurate) 3D paleoseismic trench models using coded scale bars. The data constrain three-dimensional models of a 46-m long,

Data to accompany the study Quaternary Reelfoot fault deformation in the Obion River valley, Tennessee, USA by Delano et al. (2021)

This data release contains machine-readable files accompanying the study Quaternary Reelfoot fault deformation in the Obion River valley, Tennessee, USA published by Delano et al. (2021) in Tectonics. The data release includes grain size analyses from three auger sites (TableS1_WilsonLoop_grainsize.txt, TableS2_Lanesferry_grainsize.txt, TableS3_BiggsFarm_grainsize.txt) and unit descriptions from t

Bathymetric and topographic grid intended for simulations of the 1945 Makran tsunami in Karachi Harbour

This digital elevation model provides a tool for calibrating tsunami risk to observations of the 1945 Makran tsunami in Karachi Harbour. The DEM bathymetry is derived from soundings made mainly during the first eight years after the tsunami. Although deficient in portraying intertidal backwaters and upland topography, the DEM accurately depicts the sheltered setting of one of the two tide gauges t

Data compiled from stratigraphic and tree-ring studies of late Holocene earthquakes and tsunamis at Copalis River, Grays Harbor, Willapa Bay, and Columbia River, Washington and Oregon

This dataset consists of tabular information from coastal studies of earthquake and tsunami history along a central part of the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The study area encompasses four estuaries along the Pacific coast of southern Washington and northernmost Oregon. Nearly all the field work took place between 1986 and 1998. Data tables, 18 in all, archive mostly georeferenced information about s

Array-based Surface-wave Active- or Passive-source Recordings at 10 Seismic Station Sites in California

The dataset is consisted of travel-time records ( in SEG2 format recorded using multi-station MASW and AM arrays near 10 seismographic stations located in California. A table in the spreadsheet (SWM_deployment_record.xlsx) summarizes the data collection, with multiple sheets providing further details about array configurations at each station. Stations included in the dataset are CE.2

Creep rate models for California faults in the 2023 US National Seismic Hazard Model

Widespread surface creep is observed across a number of active faults included in the US National Seismic Hazard Model. In northern California, creep occurs on the central section of the San Andreas Fault, along the Hayward and Calaveras faults through the San Francisco Bay Area, and to the north coast region along the Maacama and Bartlett Springs faults. In southern California, creep is observed
