Estimated geospatial and tabular damages and vulnerable population distributions resulting from exposure to multiple hazards by the M7.0 HayWired scenario on April 18, 2018, for 17 counties in the San Francisco Bay region, California

This data release is comprised of geospatial and tabular data developed for the HayWired communities at risk analysis. The HayWired earthquake scenario is a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hypothesized to occur on the Hayward Fault on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. The following 17 counties are included in this analysis unless otherwise specified: Alameda, Contra Costa, Ma

Economic subareas of interest data for areas containing concentrated damage resulting from the April 18, 2018, HayWired earthquake scenario in the San Francisco Bay region, California

The data in this data release are comprised of one geospatial vector dataset and three tabular datasets related to the HayWired earthquake scenario, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hypothesized to occur on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. The geospatial vector data are a representation of identified economic subareas for use in selected analyses related to selected countie

A Global Hybrid Vs30 Map with a Topographic-Slope-Based Default and Regional Map Insets

Time-averaged shear wave velocity over the upper 30 meters of the earth's surface (Vs30) is a key parameter for estimating ground motion amplification as both a predictive and diagnostic tool for earthquake hazards. A first-order approximation of Vs30 is commonly obtained via a topographic slope-based or terrain proxy due to the widely available nature of digital elevation models. However, better-

Pre-existing features associated with active faulting in the vicinity of the 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake sequence

This dataset is composed of linear active tectonic and other relevant features (scarps, deflected drainages, and lineaments and contrasts in topography, vegetation, and ground color) mapped based on high-resolution topography, aerial/satellite imagery, and field observations. The mapping covers the area surrounding the 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake surface ruptures. Point locations of fie

Inventory data of rock avalanches in the Saint Elias Mountains of southeast Alaska, derived from Landsat imagery (1984-2019)

Glacial retreat and mountain-permafrost degradation resulting from rising global temperatures have the potential to impact the frequency and magnitude of landslides in glaciated environments. In the Saint Elias Mountains of southeast Alaska, the presence of weak sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and active uplift resulting from the collision of the Yakutat and North American tectonic plates create

Data Release for the 2018 U.S. Geological Survey - California Geological Survey Fault-Imaging Surveys Across the Hollywood and Santa Monica Faults, Los Angeles County, California

We acquired multiple types of controlled-source seismic data across the Hollywood Fault in Hollywood, Calif., and the Santa Monica Fault in Beverly Hills, Calif., in May and June of 2018. We acquired two separate profiles across the Hollywood Fault, and from those data we can evaluate multiple seismic datasets and calculate seismic models including guided-wave data, tomographic VP data, tomographi

Lidar point cloud, raster, mapping, analysis, and photographic data for streambank erosion and related geomorphic change in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, California, USA

These data are derived from four lidar surveys: one airborne survey in 2006 and three terrestrial surveys in 2016, 2017, and 2018. These surveys were used to generate better quantitative understanding of changes associated with fluvial system process along the reach of the Tuolumne River as it traverses Tuolumne Meadows. This research was performed to provide science for decision support as the Na

Data report for line 8 of the 2011 USGS seismic imaging survey at San Andreas Lake, San Mateo County, California

In June of 2011, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired high-resolution P- and S-wave seismic data across the mapped (Schussler, 1906) trace of the San Andreas Fault zone at San Andreas Lake in unincorporated San Mateo County, California. Our seismic survey consisted of seismic reflection, refraction, and guided-wave data along a 60-m-long profile. To acquire the reflection and refraction data we co-

Results from frequency-ratio analyses of soil classification and land use related to landslide locations in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria

To better understand factors potentially contributing to the occurrence of rainfall-induced landslides in Puerto Rico, we evaluated the locations of landslides there following Hurricane Maria (Hughes et al., 2019) and potential contributing factors. This data release provides results of evaluations of landslide locations compared to soil classification and land cover, which involved frequency-rati

Calibration Coefficients for the U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model and Depth to Water Table

The U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model (NCM) is being developed to include spatially varying estimates of site response in seismic hazard assessments. Primary outputs of the NCM are continuous velocity and density profiles from the Earth's surface to the mantle transition zone at 410 km depth for each location on a 1-kilometer grid across the conterminous United States. Datasets used to

High-resolution seismic imaging of the West Napa Fault Zone at Buhman Avenue, Napa, California

In November 2016, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired high resolution P- and S-wave seismic data across the trace of the West Napa Fault zone near Buhman Avenue in Napa, California. The primary goal of the seismic survey was to image the subsurface damage from the 2014 MW 6.0 South Napa earthquake to assist in a near-surface fault slip and deformation investigation. We acquired seismic reflection,
