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

Data Release for the 2018 Update of the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model: Where, Why, and How Much Probabilistic Ground Motion Maps Changed

This dataset presents where, why, and how much probabilistic ground motions have changed with the 2018 update of the National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) for the conterminous U.S. (CONUS) vs. the 2014 NSHM. In the central and eastern U.S., hazard changes are the result of updated ground motion models (further broken down by median and epistemic uncertainty, aleatory variability, and site effects m

Ground motion Fourier and response spectra from Utah earthquakes, 2010--2020

Records from strong motion stations were downloaded from FDSN and CESMD data centers with a search radius of approximately 220 km from Salt Lake City. Waveforms were processed to deconvolve instrument response and for baseline corrections. Signal was separated from noise using an automated P-wave picker. The signal was then windowed to include the mean plus two standard deviations of the signal. A

Whole-rock chemistry of Hole G core samples from the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD), California

We present whole-rock geochemical analyses of 27 Phase 3 core samples obtained from Hole G of the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth, which crosses the creeping section of the San Andreas Fault ~14 km NW of Parkfield, California. These new data will essentially double the published whole-rock chemical dataset for the SAFOD Hole G core. Two, meters-wide zones of foliated gouge where fault creep

Weekly cloud free Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 (HLS) Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data for western United States (2016 – 2019).

In support of mapping ecological conditions (e.g. invasive annual grass) in sagebrush-dominated landscapes of the western United States, we developed weekly (starting from week 7 to week 42 and Week 1 starts January 1 or Day of the year 1 to 7, week 2 is from Day of year 8 to 14, and so on) 30-m cloud-free Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) from 2016 to 2019. The data was generated with

Data release for: An assessment of uncertainties attributed by analysts, array types and processing algorithms for microtremor observations, using the phased 2018 COSMOS Blind Trials

The Consortium of Organizations for Strong Motion Observation Systems (COSMOS) supported blind trials using passive microtremor array data for shear-wave velocity site characterization. The trials included data from four sites in order to consider limitations imposed by differing geologies, differing sparse array geometries, and differing interpretation methodologies. The trials used a four-phase

Coseismic surface displacement and fault zone width measurements in the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes from WorldView optical image correlation

(1) Lateral displacement measurements made based on optical image correlation results from WorldView satellite images along with (2) local and regional rupture width measurements for the 2019 Mw6.4 and Mw7.1 Ridgecrest earthquakes, CA. These datasets are associated with the publication: Gold, R. D., DuRoss, C. B., & Barnhart, W. D., 2021, Coseismic surface displacement in the 2019 Ridgec

Earthquake geology inputs for the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) 2023, version 1.0

This Data Release contains preliminary versions of two related databases: 1) A fault sections database ("NSHM2023_FaultSections_v1"), which depicts the geometry of faults capable of hosting independent earthquakes, and 2) An earthquake geology site information database ("NSHM2023_EQGeoDB_v1"), which contains fault slip-rate constraints at points. These databases

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

Digitized datasets of the structure of Cenozoic and late Cretaceous strata along the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains from Texas to New Jersey

This dataset consists of shapefiles that are digitized contours of the structure of Cenozoic and late Cretaceous strata along the Gulf and Atlantic Coastal plains from Texas to New Jersey, not including Maryland and Delaware. Well depths and seismic profiles indicating depth to or elevation of subsurface geologic contacts present in some datasets have also been digitized. Metadata files (.xml) des
