Data Sets for Mw 7.1 Ridgecrest Sequence

The SCEDC has the following links and data sets for use by the research community studying this event. The SCEDC is also archiving and distributing waveform data from portable stations installed by the USGS shortly after the event. NOTE: The east and vertical channel names for the ZY data are swapped. This is reflected in the metadata as of April 15, 2020.
