    Induced seismicity refers to typically minor earthquakes and tremors that are caused by human activity that alters the stresses and strains on the Earth's induced seismicity is of a low magnitude. A few sites regularly have larger quakes, such as The Geysers geothermal plant in California which averaged two M4 events and 15 M3 events every year from to Scientists and technical staff within the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program study coastal and ocean resources from shorelines and estuaries to the continental shelf and deep sea, providing expertise, tools, products, and data that address and inform a broad array of resource challenges facing our Nation.

    Final corrections are now being made to the Santa Ana sheet compilation by the U.S. Geological Survey, and this map should be available soon. An Isostatic Residual Gravity Map (scale, ,), which covers the entire State, has been submitted to DMG by the U.S. Geological Survey for possible publication in the California Data Map Series. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) had carried out detailed investigations of major earthquakes in Charleston, South Carolina, in and in Alaska in , and continued with USGS scientists participating in investigations of the San Francisco Earthquake and the Hebgen Lake Earthquake near Yellowstone Park.

The purpose of this report is to alert others as to the nature of the strong-motion data that is available from this event.

The California Geological Survey provides scientific products and services about the state's geology, seismology and mineral resources, including their related hazards, that affect the health, safety, and business interests of the people of California.

Near-source strong motion velocity records and teleseismic short-period P waveforms are modeled to obtain the spatial and temporal distribution of slip for the Morgan Hill earthquake.

Strong P wave velocity variations were found in the depth range 30– km, with velocities ranging from –% to + %. Strong motion.

In earlythe San Fernando Valley was the scene of a dense network of strong-motion seismometers, which provided a total of seismograms.

This made the earthquake the most documented event, at the time, in terms of strong-motion seismology; by comparison, the Alaska earthquake did not provide any strong motion affected: Greater Los Angeles Area.
