Caltech/USGS Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN) and Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC): Data availability for the 2019 Ridgecrest sequence

January 22, 2020

The 2019 M6.4 and M7.1 Ridgecrest earthquake sequence occurred in the eastern California shear
zone (ECSZ). The mainshock ruptured the Little Lake fault zone and aftershocks extended from
the Garlock fault in the south, to the southern end of the 1872 M7.5 Owens Valley earthquake
rupture in the north. We present data from the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN) and
partner seismic networks recorded by the SCSN in the region. These time series data and related
products such as the SCSN earthquake picks and catalogs, available from the Southern California
Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC), provide the most comprehensive seismic datasets for the 2019
Ridgecrest earthquake sequence.
