I use template matching and precise relative relocation techniques to develop a high-resolution earthquake catalog for the initial portion of the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquake sequence, from July 4-16, encompassing the foreshock sequence and the first 10+ days of aftershocks following the Mw 7.1 mainshock. Using 13,525 routinely cataloged events as waveform templates, I detect and precisely locate a total of 34,091 events. Precisely located earthquakes reveal numerous cross-cutting fault structures with dominantly perpendicular SW- and NW-strikes. Foreshocks of the Mw 6.4 event appear to align on a NW-striking fault. Aftershocks of the Mw 6.4 event suggest that it further ruptured this NW-striking fault, as well as...

This product is the result of a comprehensive compilation of site-specific ground photographs taken where tectonic faulting and ground failure produced visible deformation that fractured and disturbed the ground surface. The resultant data is distributed as collection of JPEG image files. All post-earthquake photographs taken by investigators working for public agencies are in the public domain, including data that have been published in summary reports elsewhere. These photographs are best viewed in context with fault rupture and other observations from the related KMZ file of summary field observations and photographs (https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/5c1d7ae0e4b0708288ca1322), or from the associated open-file...

The 2018 Kīlauea eruption and caldera collapse generated intense cycles of seismicity tied to repeated large seismic (Mw ~5) collapse events associated with magma withdrawal from beneath the summit. To gain insight into the underlying dynamics and aid eruption response, we applied waveform-based earthquake detection and double-difference location as the eruption unfolded. Here, we augment these rapid results by grouping events based on patterns of correlation-derived phase polarities across the network. From April 29 to August 6, bracketing the eruption, we used ~2800 events cataloged by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory to detect and precisely locate 44,000+ earthquakes. Resulting hypocentroids resolve complex,...

This cover consists of location and size information for historicaland recent earthquakes that caused Modified Mercalli Intensity(MMI) VI (6) or higher in the map area. There were 26 earthquakesthat caused that level of damage. The most reknown are thefour earthquakes in the 1811- 1812 sequence; two on Dec 16,1811, and one each on Jan 23, 1812, and Feb 7, 1812. Theircalculated Moment Magnitudes were 8.1, 7.2, 7.8, and 8.0,respectively. The most recent damaging earthquake was on June 10,1987 near Olney, Illinois. It had a Moment Magnitude of 5.2.

New 1:24,000-scale geologic mapping along the Interstate-70 urban corridor in western Colorado, in support of the USGS Central Region State/USGS Cooperative Geologic Mapping Project, is contributing to a more complete understanding of the stratigraphy, structure, tectonic evolution, and hazard potential of this rapidly developing region. The 1:24,000-scale Frisco quadrangle is near the headwaters of the Blue River and straddles features of the Blue River graben (Kellogg, K.S., 1999, Neogene basins of the northern Rio Grande rift�partitioning and asymmetry inherited from Laramide and older uplifts: Tectonophysics, v. 305, p. 141-152.), part of the northernmost reaches of the Rio Grande rift, a major late Oligocene...

This dataset represents the spatial locations of all modeled aftershocks magnitude 2.5 and greater resulting from the HayWired M7.0 mainshock occurring on April 18, 2018 along the Hayward Fault. The date/time, horizontal and vertical location, and sequence position is provided for each aftershock. The spatial extent covers 24 counties in whole or in part, corresponding to the modeled shaking extent for the HayWired mainshock ShakeMap (available at https://earthquake.usgs.gov/scenarios/eventpage/ushaywiredm7.05_se#shakemap). The sequence is simulated based on several known statistical relationships and generated using an epidemic type aftershock sequence (ETAS) model, resulting in one possible aftershock sequence....

This dataset contains a provisional release of field observations at sites of fault rupture and ground deformation features where quantitative displacement measurements were obtained. This release does not include associated photographs and some observations where there are outstanding questions about the measurements received; some duplicate observations may exist in this dataset. Photos and resolved measurement data are anticipated for a future release. This dataset consists of a comma-delimited ASCII text file where each line in the file represents an observation, suitable for importing into a spreadsheet, database or GIS application for visualization and analysis. These data are also summarized in a companion...

In 1986 and 1987, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Direcci�nGeneral de Geolog�a, Minas e Hidrocarburos, and the Universidad deCosta Rica conducted a mineral-resource assessment of the Republicof Costa Rica. The results were published as a large 80- by 50-cmcolor folio (U.S. Geological Survey and others, 1987). The 75-pagedocument consists of maps as well as descriptive and interpretivetext in English and Spanish covering physiographic, geologic,geochemical, geophysical, and mineral site themes as well as amineral-resource assessment. The following maps are present in theoriginal folio:1) Physiographic base map at a scale of 1:500,000 with hypsography,place names, and drainage.2) Geologic map at a scale of...

This item contains linework that represents fault rupture and ground deformation features interpreted from field-based maps and observations, as well as airborne imagery, lidar, and geodetic imagery products. Provisional maps of fault rupture and ground deformation are composed of a “mashup” of linework from these various sources, obtained and compiled as of December, 2019. If more than one linework representation exists for a segment of the fault rupture, linework showing the most rupture detail or best location accuracy, based on the judgment of the compiler, is preserved. On provisional maps, less than 25% of the linework is derived from high-resolution optical imagery and detailed field mapping. Because line...
