Summary

PAGER-CAT incorporates eight global earthquake catalogs and additional auxiliary data to provide comprehensive information for hypocentral locations, magnitudes, and human fatalities, focal mechanisms, the country of origin or the distance to the nearest landmass, local time and day of week, presence of secondary effects (e.g., tsunami, landslide, fire, or liquefaction) and deaths caused by these effects, the number of buildings damaged or destroyed, and the number of people injured or left homeless. The first version of the catalog contains more than 140 fields in which detailed event information can be recorded and currently includes events from 1900 through December 2007, with emphasis on earthquakes since 1973.
