Data Release for the 2014 National Seismic Hazard Model for the Conterminous U.S.

Seismicity catalogs, GIS shapefiles, gridded seismic hazard curve data, gridded ground motion data, and mapped gridded ground motion values are available for the 2014 National Seismic Hazard Model for the Conterminous U.S. Probabilistic seismic hazard data and maps of the conterminous U.S. for peak ground acceleration (PGA) and 0.2 and 1.0 second spectral acceleration at probability levels of 2 pe

Data Release for the 2003 Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands Seismic Hazard Model

Gridded seismic hazard curve data, gridded ground motion data, and mapped gridded ground motion values are available for the 2003 Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands Seismic Hazard Model. Probabilistic seismic hazard data and maps are available for peak ground acceleration (PGA) and 0.2, 0.3, and 1.0 second spectral acceleration at probability levels of 2 percent in 50 years and 10 percent in 50 y

3D Geologic Framework for use with the U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model, Phase 1: Western United States

A 3D geologic framework is presented here as part of the U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model for the western United States, which will be used to improve seismic hazard assessment. The framework is based on 1:250,000 to 1:1,000,000-scale state geologic maps and depths of multiple subsurface unit boundaries. The geology at or near the Earth’s surface is based on published maps with modifi

Grids in support of the U.S. Geological Survey Thermal Model for Seismic Hazard Studies

A 3D temperature model is constructed in order to support the estimation of physical parameters within the USGS National Crustal Model. The crustal model is defined by a geological framework consisting of various lithologies with distinct mineral compositions. A temperature model is needed to calculate mineral density and bulk and shear modulus as a function of position within the crust. These pro

Spatiotemporal Analysis of the Foreshock-Mainshock-Aftershock Sequence of the 6 July 2017 M5.8 Lincoln, Montana, Earthquake - Data Release

We used matched filter detection and multiple-event relocation techniques to characterize the spatiotemporal evolution of the sequence. Our analysis is from the 14 closest seismic stations to the earthquake sequence, which included seven permanent stations from the Montana Regional Seismic Network, one permanent station from the ANSS backbone network and three temporary seismic stations deployed b

Data Release for 2018 Update of the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model

The 2018 Update of the U.S. National Seismic Hazard Model defines the potential for earthquake ground shaking for various probability levels across the conterminous United States and is applied in seismic provisions of building codes, insurance rate structures, risk assessments, and other public policy. The updated model represents an assessment of the best available science in earthquake hazards

Database of ground motions from tectonic and volcanic events, Hawaii, 2018

This study involves a collection of peak ground motions from the 2018 M6.9 earthquake near Leilani Estates, Hawaii and the seismicity associated with the Kilauea Volcano eruption and summit collapse events. This study was intended to provide instrumental ground motion observations to evaluate ground motion models for use in the USGS Hawaii seismic hazard model. Significant variations in ground mot

2016 Mw 6.0 Petermann Ranges earthquake, Australia: Pre- and post-earthquake digital elevation models

We generated digital elevation models (DEMs) using pre- and post-event in-track stereo 0.5 m resolution panchromatic Worldview 1 and 2 images (2019, DigitalGlobe) using the Surface Extraction from TIN-based Searchspace Minimization (SETSM) software [Noh and Howat, 2015] running on the University of Iowa Argon supercomputer (Table S1). The post-event DEMs exhibit along-track striping artifacts comm

Database of ground motions from in-slab earthquakes near Anchorage, Alaska, 2008-2019

The dataset contains earthquake ground motions from intermediate-depth (in-slab) earthquakes occurring within 350 km of Anchorage, Alaska 2008-2019. Ground motions are processed as described in the accompanying journal article for rotation-independent horizontal-component ground-shaking at oscillator periods between 0.1 and 10 s.

Results of individual and collocated lifeline exposure to hazards (and associated hazard and multi-hazard exposure surface data) resulting from the HayWired scenario earthquake sequence for counties and cities in the San Francisco Bay area, California

These data are a summary of modeled exposure of various lifeline infrastructure linear features and facilities (transportation, water supply and wastewater, oil and gas, electric power, and telecommunications) to potential hazards resulting from the HayWired earthquake scenario, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurring on the Hayward Fault on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, C
