Citing the ISC-GEM Catalogue

In 2013 we published in Seismological Research Letters a short paper 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, doi: 10.1785/0220130034.

In 2014, to describe in more detail the approaches we followed to produce the ISC-GEM catalogue, we published in Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interior five papers describing the tasks accomplished to produce the catalogue:
