Abstract:
The enclosed files present a compilation of 437 seismic events (mostly earthquakes) in and near Pennsylvania. The data include instrumentally recorded seismic events from the mid-1960s to July 31, 2003, as well as historical (pre-instrumental) events since 1724. The data were obtained from existing catalogs and published sources and compiled in a Microsoft Access database. Each database record encompasses just one event (main shocks, foreshocks, and aftershocks are recorded separately). Each record consists of 30 fields, which include a unique event number, map number, date, time (hour, minute, and second), location (latitude and longitude, as well as county and town), magnitude, intensity, depth of focus, source(s) of the event data, and ancillary remarks.
Purpose:
The objectives of this study are to (1) provide a comprehensive database/catalog and coverage (dataset) of earthquake epicenters in and near Pennsylvania from 1724 to July 31, 2003, which had previously been lacking in one source; and (2) create digital files in standard formats that can be readily used by government, industry, academia, and the public to obtain geologic information critical to planning and decision making. It is anticipated that the digital dataset will be used for a variety of regional or statewide geographic-information-system applications, including design of structures, facility permits, and emergency-response planning.
Supplemental_Information:
The dataset is not intended to be used for detailed or site-specific analyses, nor is it intended to be used at any scale finer (i.e., larger, more detailed) than 1:250,000 (for example, use at 1:24,000 scale is inappropriate). The historic events (before 1966) have a poor location accuracy, with errors of as much as 0.5 degree (tens of kilometers) for the oldest events. Instrumental events (those measured by seismic instruments, largely after 1965) have much better accuracy, with a probable error of perhaps 2 to 4 kilometers.

Data_Set_Credit:
Earthquake epicenters are from a database prepared by Rodger T. Faill, Pennsylvania Geological Survey (PaGS), based on data from a number of sources, which are listed in detail in the references table of the database. Data were converted to a georeferenced dataset by Rodger T. Faill and Christine E. Miles (PaGS). Metadata was prepared by Rodger T. Faill. The dataset and metadata were edited by Christine E. Miles and Caron E. O'Neil.
Native_Data_Set_Environment:
Dell Precision 340 and 530 workstations running Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Access 2000 (version 9.0.3821, SR–1), and ESRI ArcInfo workstation (versions 8.1.2 and 8.2).

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attributes in the ArcInfo dataset for earthquake events are from an Access database compiled by R. T. Faill (PaGS) from a variety of earthquake catalogs and other sources, representing the work of many authors, compilers, and other contributors. No accuracy tests were conducted on the data from those sources, except that some seismic events previously reported as earthquakes and now strongly suspected to be nonnatural (i.e., quarry blasts and mine collapses) have been designated as such in Faill’s database and this dataset.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Points in the dataset were checked on-screen, on a check plot, and on printouts of atttribute tables to ensure that they were in agreement with the data in the Access database and that they were locationally correct.
Completeness_Report:
The dataset encompasses all events recorded in Pennsylvania and in a 50- to 60-km-wide apron in the surrounding states (New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, and New York).
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal positional accuracy of historical events (arbitrarily pre-1966) is poor, being largely based on newspaper reports of felt events in the larger towns and cities. Instrumental events (those measured by seismic instruments, largely after 1965) have much better accuracy; the probable error is perhaps 2 to 4 kilometers.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A database (eqpa.mdb) of 437 seismic events that occurred in and near Pennsylvania between 1724 and July 31, 2003, was prepared using Microsoft Access 2000 software (version 9.0.3821, SR–1). The events were compiled from a number of published and unpublished sources, which are cited in the reference fields in the database. A point coverage (eqpa) was generated from the database using ESRI ArcInfo workstation software (version 8.2).

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: MAP_NO
Attribute_Definition:
Map number referring to a specific location on the epicenter map. The total number of map locations is 232. Events are separated into five groupings based on whether the event location was determined from newspaper accounts, damage-intensity surveys, or other noninstrumental means (arbitrarily pre-1966), or by seismic instruments (arbitrarily post-1965); whether the epicenter is within Pennsylvania, or outside (but still nearby) Pennsylvania; and whether the event has a nonnatural cause (mine collapse or quarry blast).
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain:
The five groupings and associated ranges of values are as follows: (1) earthquakes since 1965 within Pennsylvania—map numbers 1 through 58; (2) earthquakes since 1965 outside Pennsylvania—map numbers 100 through 206; (3) earthquakes before 1966 within Pennsylvania—map numbers 500 through 530; (4) earthquakes before 1966 outside Pennsylvania—map numbers 700 through 727; and (5) nonnatural seismic events (mine collapse or quarry blast)—map numbers 900 through 907. The first two groups include some pre-1966 events in areas where two or more events that occurred in the same location or in close proximity have been combined and assigned the same map number.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: F_A
Attribute_Definition:
Type of seismic event. For a swarm, main-event status is assigned to the event having the largest magnitude; events preceding the main event are designated as foreshocks and those following the main event as aftershocks.

Attribute_Definition:
Designation of whether an event is part of an earthquake swarm. The term “swarm” is herein used for a group of events having identical or proximal locations that occurred within a short period of time. Swarm designation is not precise. The span of locations varies from swarm to swarm. The time period may be minutes or hours to months. A swarm has a main event and may have one or more foreshocks and/or aftershocks.

Unrepresentable_Domain:
Where an event is designated as part of a swarm, the attribute consists of an event date, which is the date of the main event of the swarm. The attribute “single” designates that the event is not part of a swarm. The attributes “quarry blast” or “mine collapse” indicate that the seismic event has a nonnatural cause.
