Cahuilla Swarm Catalog (2016-2019)

This page describes the catalog accompaning the paper
Ross et.al (2020) “3D fault architecture controls the dynamism of earthquake swarms”, Science, doi: 10.1126/science.abb0779

Please see the paper and supplementary text for details on the construction of the catalog. If you use this catalog in your work, we ask that you cite the Science paper. Please also acknowledge the DOIs for SCSN and SCEDC as described below.

The columns are in GrowClust format:

  • yr, mon, day, hr, min, sec: relocated origin time (columns 1–6)
  • eID: event ID (column 7)
  • latR, lonR, depR: relocated latitude, longitude and depth (decimal degrees and km; columns 8–10)
  • mag event magnitude (column 11) [NOTE: we didn’t calculate magnitudes for this study]
  • qID, cID, nbranch: event serial ID number, cluster serial ID number, total number of events in this cluster (columns 12–14)
  • qnpair, qndiffP, qndiffS: number of event pairs, P-phase differential times, and S-phase differential times used to relocate this event (columns 15–17)
  • rmsP, rmsS: RMS residual differential times for this event for P- and S-phases (s; columns 18–19)
  • eh, ez, et: estimated location errors in horizontal (km), vertical (km), and origin time (s; columns 20–22)
  • latC, lonC, depC: initial (catalog) latitude, longitude and depth (decimal degrees and km; columns 23–25)

Data and materials availability

The Cahuilla swarm catalog will be publicly available from the Southern California Earthquake Data Center (scedc.caltech.edu). All waveform and parametric data are available from the Caltech/USGS Southern California Seismic Network doi:10.7914/SN/CI; stored at the Southern California Earthquake Data Center, doi:10.7909/C3WD3xH1. All remaining data are available in the main text or the supplementary materials.
