Probabilistic seismic hazard maps were prepared for Alaska portraying peak horizontal ground acceleration and horizontal spectral response acceleration for 0.2, 0.3, and 1.0 second periods with probabilities of exceedance of 10% in 50 years and 2% in 50 years. This particular data set is for peak horizontal acceleration with a 10% probability of exceedance in 50 years. All of the maps were prepared by combining hazard derived from spatially-smoothed historic seismicity with hazard from fault-specific sources. The acceleration values contoured are the random horizontal component. The reference site condition is firm rock, defined as having an average shear-wave velocity of 760 m/sec in the top 30 meters corresponding...

The northern part of the map area and large adjacent regions havebeen severely shaken by one or more moderate to large prehistoricearthquakes. The evidence of these takes the form ofpaleoliquefaction features, including shaking-induced sandblows anddikes that fed them.Over several summer field seasons from 1990 through 1994,several workers searched ditches and river banks for evidenceof liquefaction. They found numerous dikes and sandblows.This database includes the locations and descriptions of dikes theyobserved and measured.The most widespread paleoliquefaction is attributed to amid-Holocene earthquake near what is now Vicennes, IN, with anestimated moment- magnitude of about 7.5. Stratigraphic,geomorphological,...

This cover consists of location and size information for historicaland recent earthquakes that caused Modified Mercalli Intensity(MMI) VI (6) or higher in the map area. There were 26 earthquakesthat caused that level of damage. The most reknown are thefour earthquakes in the 1811- 1812 sequence; two on Dec 16,1811, and one each on Jan 23, 1812, and Feb 7, 1812. Theircalculated Moment Magnitudes were 8.1, 7.2, 7.8, and 8.0,respectively. The most recent damaging earthquake was on June 10,1987 near Olney, Illinois. It had a Moment Magnitude of 5.2.

This report contains all of the available daily sulfur dioxide andcarbon dioxide emission rates from Cook Inlet volcanoes asdetermined by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from March 1990through July 1994. Airborne sulfur dioxide gas sampling of theCook Inlet volcanoes (Redoubt, Spurr, Iliamna, and Augustine)began in 1986 when several measurements were carried out atAugustine volcano during the eruption of 1986. Systematic monitoringfor sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide began in March 1990 atRedoubt volcano and continues to the present. Intermittentmeasurements at Augustine and Iliamna volcanoes began in 1990 andcontinues to the present. Intermittent measurements began at Spurrvolcano in 1991, and were continued...

These maps show, for emergency service managers in the San FranciscoBay region, the threshold rainfall that may be capable oftriggering a level of debris-flow activity likely to threatenpublic safety. The maps are products of a continuing series ofstudies that began after a catastrophic storm on January 3-5, 1982triggered 18,000 debris flows in the San Francisco Bay region,causing 25 deaths and $66 million in property damage. Thethreshold rainfall values were estimated by re-evaluating aprevious empirical analysis of data from the 1982 storm, and otherhistorical rainfall records, that normalized the rainfall intensitydata by dividing by the mean annual precipitation (MAP) of thecorresponding rain gage. The present...

This cover contains station locations of the New Madrid SeismicNetwork within the study boundary. The network is a cooperativeproject of Saint Louis University and Memphis State University.Operation of the network has been continuous since June 1975, butoperators have changed the network configuration throughout thattime period. The start and stop dates in the point attribute fileare not complete, but are included because they are useful for someof the stations.

NOTE: Location of one point, near -88.65, 38.95, was incorrectwhen Sheet A was published. The location is .5 degree south, andis corrected in this dataset.This cover contains locations of places where greatest horizontalcompressive stress (S(Hmax)) orientations havebeen determined either by observation of well-bore breakouts or wherefocal mechanism solutions have been determined from earthquakes.Well-bore breakouts are observed from 0 to 1.4 km, whereas earthquakesgenerally occur deeper. The earthquake focal mechanismsshow both reverse and strike-slip faulting. Overall the stressindicators show easterly trending S(Hmax).

This map identifies the principal areas in the San Francisco Bayregion that are likely to produce debris flows, which are alsocalled "mudslides." Debris flows that occur in the bay region arefast-moving downslope flows of mud that may include rocks,vegetation, and other debris. These flows begin during intenserainfall as shallow landslides on steep slopes. The rapid movementand sudden arrival of debris flows pose a hazard to life andproperty during and immediately following the triggering rainfall.Debris flows in a given storm originate from a number of sourcesscattered throughout steep parts of the landscape, as shown infigure 1 (on map sheet; files sfbr- df.ps, al-df.ps, etc.). Duringsubsequent storms, new debris...

The coverages were created using the gridded data available fromthis ftp site. Most of the gridded data for the United States is ata spacing of 0.1 degrees latitude and longitude. The higherresolution data available for California, Nevada, and part ofArizona and Utah were used for both the U.S. and Western U.S. maps.The gridded data for this area is at a spacing of 0.05 degreeslatitude and longitude.
