NCEDC - Northern California Earthquake Data Center

Program Description: The Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC) is a permanent archive and distribution center primarily for multiple types of digital data relating to earthquakes in central and northern California. he NCEDC is located at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, and has been accessible to users via the Internet since mid-1992. The NCEDC also provides support for earthquake processing and archiving activities of the Northern California Earthquake Management Center.

Year Started: 2005.

Organization Description: N/A

Data Description: Time series data come from broadband, short period, and strong motion seismic sensors, and geophysical sensors such as electromagnetic sensors, strain meters, creep meters, pore pressure, water level, and wind speed sensors. Earthquake catalogs can include time, hypocenter, magnitude, moment tensor, mechanisms, phase arrivals, codas, and amplitude data. GPS data are available in both raw observables and RINEX formatted data.
