Hayes, Gavin, 2017, Data for systematic observations of the slip-pulse properties of large earthquake ruptures: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data release includes geodetic time series from high-rate GPS instruments recording 4 earthquakes co-seismically in the near-field – the 2010 Maule, Chile earthquake; the 2012 Nicoya, Costa Rica earthquake; the 2014 Iquique, Chile earthquake; and the 2015 Gorkha, Nepal earthquake. For each earthquake, data (sac files, 1 Hz sampling, ~2-3 minutes around the earthquake origin time) are included in a separate folder. Each sac file provides a time series of ground displacement from the earthquake as recorded at that station. The location of each station is listed in the relevant earthquake file in the “_station_info” folder.
