Geodetic measurements using a two-color Electronic Distance Meter made in California, 1975 to 2005

Measurements of changes in the distance (or length) between monuments are provided. These measurements were made using a two-color Electronic Distance Meter (EDM) that can measure distances between 1 and 10 KM. Nominal precision of these data range from 0.3 mm to 1.0 mm dependent upon the baseline’s length. These measurements were made between mid-1975 to mid-2006. Data in this archive are from ei

Scanned Recordings of the Rangely Earthquake Control Experiment (1973)

These are scanned recordings from the Rangely earthquake control experiment that took place from 1969-1974 in the area surrounding Rangely, Colorado. Data were telemetered to Menlo Park, California, where they were recorded on develocorder films. Twelve stations with a total of fourteen channels were recorded and are available in this data set. Data were collected by the US Geological Survey

High-resolution seismic data from the Frijoles Fault of the San Gregorio Fault zone, Año 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 Año Nuevo, California in 2012. The SGFZ is a Holocene-active, dominantly right-lateral fault system that trends more than 200 km along the California coastline. The Frijoles Fault is one of several onshore strands of the SGF system, and together t

Data Release for the 2023 U.S. 50-State National Seismic Hazard Model - Overview

This data release contains data sets associated with the 2023 50-State National Seismic Hazard Model Update. The 2023 50-State National Seimsic Hazard Model (NSHM) Update includes an update to the NSHMs for the conterminous U.S (CONUS, last updated in 2018), Alaska (AK, last updated in 2007), and Hawaii (last updated in 2001). Data sets include inputs like seismicity catalogs used as input to the

Broadband Ground Motion Simulations for 12 California Region Earthquakes

This Data Release consists of broadband ground motion simulations for 12 California region earthquakes. The ground motion simulations were done as part of a validation study that is described in more detail in Graves (2022). These simulations were computed using a hybrid simulation methodology (hereafter referred to as GP). The GP approach is a hybrid in that separate responses are computed for th

Full-resolution photomosaics of trench walls from the 2006 paleoseismic study of the San Andreas Fault at Coachella, California

The Coachella paleoseismic site is located on the San Andreas Fault along the northeast edge of the Coachella Valley in southern California, southwest of the intersection of Dillon Road and Avenue 44. In 2006, three benched trenches were excavated across the fault zone as part of an Alquist-Priolo fault investigation study by a private geotechnical firm (see APSI_003361 at https://maps.conservatio

Data release for fault activity in the San Gabriel Mountains, USA: insights from landscape morphometrics, erosion rates, and fault-slip rates (ver. 2.0, November 2023)

This report summarizes geomorphic data and analysis from the range front and interior of the San Gabriel Mountains, California, USA. For catchment-average erosion rates, we describe the methodology used to collect samples of detrital sediment, determine concentrations of cosmogenic beryllium-10 in purified quartz isolated from the samples, and use those nuclide concentrations to calculate erosion

Slide-hold-slide experiments on Westerly Granite at temperatures up to 250 °C

Laboratory slide-hold-slide tests were conducted in a conventional triaxial deformation configuration on 1-inch diameter cylindrical cores of Westerly granite bisected by a sawcut oriented at 30 degrees from vertical. Tests were conducted at a constant confining pressure of 30 MPa with a 10 MPa pore fluid pressure. The pore fluid was deionized water. Experiments were conducted at temperatures of 2

High-resolution seismic imaging data acquired in 2021 across a trace of the San Andreas Fault at Mee Ranch, Monterey County, California

In April of 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a high-resolution seismic survey at Mee Ranch in Monterey County, California. Both passive- and active-source seismic data were acquired using DTCC SmartSolo 3-component nodal seismograph systems ("nodes"), which continuously recorded data at rates up to 2000 samples per second. For passive-source acquisition, a 6x5 grid of nodes was deployed

High-resolution seismic imaging data acquired in 2021 across the West Winters Fault, Great Valley Fault System at Bigelow Hills, Yolo County, California

In June of 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a high-resolution seismic survey at Winters, California. Seismic data were acquired using a DTCC SmartSolo 3-component nodal seismograph system ("node"), which continuously recorded at 2000 samples per second. Nodes were deployed 5 meters apart from west-southwest to east-northeast to create an approximately 800-m-long linear profile. P-wave da

Three-component nodal recordings of aftershocks from the 15 May 2020 Mw 6.5 Monte Cristo, Nevada earthquake

In May of 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey responded to the M6.5 Monte Cristo Range Earthquake, occurring near Tonopah, Nevada: https://www.usgs.gov/news/featured-story/m65-monte-cristo-range-earthquake. 60 DTCC SmartSolo 3-component nodal seismograph systems ("nodes") were deployed in the area and continuously recorded seismic data for about a month. Nodes were deployed in various arrays includin

Radiocarbon dates from the 2020 Bobcat Fire and 2013 Grand Fire, Western Transverse Ranges, California

This data release provides radiocarbon data for burned plant material collected from deposits following two wildfires in southern California. For the 2020 Bobcat Fire we collected deposits in five stream channels within the Pallett Creek drainage in 2021. For the 2013 Grand Fire near Frazier Mountain, we sampled from two shallow pits excavated into alluvium deposited in 2014. The types of taxa pre
