Data Collections

The bulk of the data at the NCEDC consists of waveform and GPS data from northern California. Figure 3.21 shows the geographic distribution of data archived by the NCEDC. Figure 3.22 shows the relative proportion of each data set at the NCEDC. The total size of the datasets archived at the NCEDC is shown in Table 3.14. Figure 3.23 shows the amount of data for each year that is archived at the NCEDC.
