This Data Release accompanies the publication "State of stress in areas of active unconventional oil and gas development in North America" by J.-E. Lund Snee (now J.-E. Lundstern) and M.D. Zoback (2022) in the AAPG Bulletin. This dataset provides maximum horizontal stress (SHmax) orientation and relative stress magnitude (faulting regime) information that comprise a new-generation crustal stress map for North America. Relative stress magnitudes are presented using the Aϕ (A_phi) parameter, a single scalar that represents the ratio of the three principal stress magnitudes. Data were collected between 2015 and 2022. Data points for SHmax orientations, relative stress magnitudes, and the earthquake focal mechanisms...

Provided here is a globally distributed catalog of earthquakes and nuclear explosions with calibrated hypocenters, referred to as the Global Catalog of Calibrated Earthquake Locations or GCCEL. This dataset contains more than 24,383 earthquakes in 352 well distributed clusters. Currently there are more than 4M arrival times with the majority being the Pg, Pn, P, Sg, Sn and S phases. The term “calibrated” refers to the property that the hypocenters are minimally biased by unknown Earth structure and that the uncertainties are meaningful. Uncertainties are calculated using empirically determined variability of the arrival time data itself, specific to each calibrated cluster of hypocenters. The data are carefully...

Minnesota Geological Survey is working with partners to build a statewide, consistent, standardized, and documented geochemical database, due to the convergence of: 1) systematic sampling & analysis of soils and stream sediments by the USGS & the MGS; 2) completion of a statewide till geochemical survey by MGS in cooperation with industry, and 3) renewed efforts by Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to ensure optimal usability of their state ground-water chemistry data. The soil/sediment data are distributed statewide, were collected over a short period of time, and samples from each project were analyzed by the individual labs following consistent and documented protocols, while the MPCA water analyses were...
