Earthquake catalog for Southern California updated


For anyone interested in high resolution earthquake locations and focal mechanisms in southern California, I’ve updated my R-package yhs.catalog to include the latest update to the Yang, Haukkson, and Shearer (2012) catalog from the Southern California Earthquake Data Center.

There are currently 196,993 earthquakes from 1981 through 2014 in the catalog:


Earthquakes in southern California since 1981. (Check out the github page in the link for code to reproduce this figure.)

Use devtools to install:

if (!require(devtools)) install.packages("devtools")
