Citing the ISC-GEM Catalogue

The following article has been published in the Seismological Research Letters (SRL) to announce the release of the ISC-GEM Catalogue and to briefly describe the procedures and data used to create the Catalogue:

  • Storchak, D.A., D. Di Giacomo, I. Bondár, E. R. Engdahl, J. Harris, W.H.K. Lee, A. Villaseñor and P. Bormann, 2013. Public Release of the ISC-GEM Global Instrumental Earthquake Catalogue (1900-2009). Seism. Res. Lett., 84, 5, 810-815.

Five scientific publications that describe the ISC-GEM Catalogue have been submitted to the Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interior:

  • Storchak, D.A., D. Di Giacomo, I.Bondár, W.H.K. Lee, P.Bormann and E.R. Engdahl. ISC-GEM: Global Instrumental Earthquake Catalogue (1900-2009): Introduction.

  • Di Giacomo, D., J. Harris, A. Villaseñor , D.A. Storchak, E.R. Engdahl, W.H.K. Lee and the Data Entry Team. ISC-GEM: Global Instrumental Earthquake Catalogue (1900-2009): I. Data collection from early instrumental seismological bulletins.

  • Bondár, I., E.R. Engdahl, A. Villaseñor , J. Harris and D.A. Storchak. ISC-GEM: Global Instrumental Earthquake Catalogue (1900-2009): II. Location and seismicity patterns.
