Summary

Introduction This data release is a compilation of known landslides, debris flows, lahars, and outburst floods that generated seismic signals observable on existing seismic networks. The data release includes basic information about each event such as location, volume, area, and runout distances as well as information about seismic detections and the location of seismic data, photos, maps, GIS files, and links to papers, websites, and media reports about the event. Not all record types exist for each event, and the quality of the information varies from event to event. While the SQLite3 database (lsseis.db) is the native format of this database and preserves its relational structure, for the convenience of users, we extracted summary [...]

Purpose

The data were collected as a starting point for a seismogenic surface event catalog, similar to an earthquake catalog, that we anticipate will help advance scientific progress on understanding and utilizing seismic recordings of surface events for basic research and monitoring applications.
