NOTE: EARTHQUAKE_EPICENTERS_IN.SHP was originally published on August 28, 2002, and was subsequently updated on March 5, 2003, and June 30, 2014. The shapefile contains historic and recent event information. The historic data was originally published by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) in a catalog of events compiled in the "The Central and Eastern United States Seismic Source Characterization for Nuclear Facilities" (CEUS SSC). The CEUS SSC catalog contains historic events up to December 31, 2008. The event information for three more recent earthquakes occuring on December 30, 2010, January 26, 2012, and May 10, 2012 were obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey, National Earthquake Information Center.

Description:
Abstract:
EARTHQUAKE_EPICENTERS_IN.SHP shows the locations of all known historical earthquakes in Indiana with a moment magnitude (Mw) greater than or equal to 3.0. It includes earthquake locations derived from both instrumented recordings and estimations from historical accounts. The shapefile is an amalgam of points created from the CEUS SSC catalog maintained by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (up to December 31, 2008) and the U.S. Geological Survey, National Earthquake Information Center (three events on December 30, 2010, January 26, 2012, and May 10, 2012). Values of Moment Magnitude (Mw) are used in this data. Mw refers to the energy released by the event, which is proportional to the slip on a fault multiplied by the area of the fault surface that slips. Events below Mw 3.0 have been omitted, as those events are below the energies felt by humans. Also, all pre-shock and aftershock, non-tectonic (e.g., mine blast), and duplicate event entries have been omitted. Data attributes include event date and time, x-y coordinate locations, and Moment Magnitude (Mw) values.
Purpose:
EARTHQUAKE_EPICENTERS_IN.SHP was created to show the distribution of earthquakes (with Mw greater than or equal to 3.0) that have occurred in Indiana, in the form of a GIS data layer. It was subsequently updated by personnel of the IGS when the more authoritative and standardized source of event records became available from the CEUS SSC catalog (as of December 31, 2008) and the U.S. Geological Survey, National Earthquake Information Center (for three recent earthquake events that occurred on December 30, 2010, January 26, 2012, and May 10, 2012).
Supplemental_Information:
The following two web sites were used by IGS staff to obtain historic and more recent earthquake event data:

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Earthquake event locations and Moment Magnitude values were obtained by IGS personnel from catalogs of the USNRC and USGS and are assumed to be accurate.
Logical_Consistency_Report: Point features present.
Completeness_Report:
Earthquake events with an Mw of 3.0 or greater have been included in this dataset. Events below Mw 3.0 have been omitted, as those events are below the energies felt by humans.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal accuracy is of highly variable quality. Some of the older calculated events are very poorly located while the more recent events that were located using instruments are much more accurate.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
NOTE: The older process steps used to construct the original versions of these data (in 2002-2003) for Indiana by IGS personnel have been removed from this document. The methods that were used are no longer valid since some of the older earthquake event catalogs are no longer readily available online.

Personnel of the IGS downloaded the shapefile named "CEUS_EQ_CATALOG_R0.SHP" from the web pages of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, (Central Eastern United States - Seismic Source Characterization for Nuclear Facilities (CEUS SSC)). It was opened in Esri ArcMap (v 10.2) and clipped to the boundary of Indiana (Landsurvey_State_Poly_IN.SHP). Events in Indiana with Moment Magnitude values of less than 3.0 were then deleted, and the temporary output file was named INDIANA_EPICENTERS_MW3_OR_GREATER.SHP.

INDIANA_EPICENTERS_MW3_OR_GREATER.SHP was appended with three more recent earthquake events in Indiana that were obtained from the "Earthquake Catalog Search" of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC), U.S. Geological Survey. The dates of the events were December 30, 2010, January 26, 2012, and May 10, 2012. The file was then renamed to "EARTHQUAKE_EPICENTERS_IN.SHP" to comply with the internal naming conventions of the Indiana Geological Survey.
