Brief description

Segmented time series data for earthquake events. Data are in raw digital counts and have associated instrument metadata for calibration to physical ground-motion measures. These data are used to inform a range of applications in seismic hazard assessment and for assessing the utility of current observatory practice for magnitude assessment. Value: Used in the selection and development of ground-motion models used for seismic hazard purposes. These data also enable the assessment and development of new earthquake magnitude formulae. Scope: Data has been collected on an ad hoc basis, some early digital data dates back to 1989 (i.e. Newcastle earthquake), and the dataset continues to grow as earthquakes of interest occur, or various temporary deployments are rolled out. Instrument metadata is not always known.

Lineage

Maintenance and Update Frequency: annually
Statement: Source: Raw instrumental data recorded by Geoscience Australia's (GAs) permanent and various temporary and aftershock deployments, state government networks (in particular South Australia), university networks (e.g., UoM & ANU) in addition to data from private seismic networks (e.g. Seismology Research Centre). Many of GAs data are on network drives:
T:\data\eq_sets\high_sample_data;
T:\data\eq_sets\HSR-WFData\hsd.

Other 3rd-party datasets are located:
T:\ops\community_safety\ehp\georisk_earthquake\hazard\Ground_Motion.

Eventually, segmented data from AusARRAY network should be incorporated into such a dataset.

Form: Datasets (segmented earthquake time-history data) are in numerous formats and locations. Formats include: miniSEED, CSS, PCSUDS, ASCII (various formats). Instrument metadata is also in various formats including: datalessSEED, xml, FAP-files, ASCII text.

This Collection record was created to enhance the discoverability and management of the individual products contained in the collection. See the individual eCat records for product specific lineage.

Notes

Purpose
Used in the selection and development of ground-motion models used for seismic hazard purposes. These data also enable the assessment and development of new earthquake magnitude formulae.
