This site contains information and water resource data on rivers and streams, ground water, and water quality. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) operates a satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems, and conducts studies of water resources, such as watersheds and aquifers. These studies help define the quantity and quality of ... Full description.

The Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) provides access to earthquake data from seismograph recording stations around the world. The Earthquake View lets users select an earthquake and see data at various stations. The Station View allows users to see if any ground motion has been recorded at a particular station. Lesson plans are being developed for REV, aimed primarly at the middle school level. The resource ... Full description.

The Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC) offers various types of earthquake-related data. Most of the datasets are available on the WWW. A few require the establishment of a research account. Available information includes: earthquake catalogs and lists; seismic waveform data from the Berkeley Digital Seismic Network, the Northern California Seismic Network, the Parkfield High-Resolution ...

This site provides access to Community Internet Intensity Maps (CIIM), made from citizen reports of ground shaking following significant earthquakes. CIIMs are available for the 50 United States and territories, as well as for some significant events outside the U.S. Intensity maps are also available for some historic earthquakes. There is also information on fast moment tensor solutions, PAGER (Prompt ... Full description.

This database summarizes geologic, geomorphic, and geographic information for about 2,000 Quaternary faults and folds in the United States. These structures are believed to be sources of magnitude 6 or greater earthquakes during the Quaternary Period (the past 1,600,000 years). Maps of these geologic structures are linked to detailed descriptions, including geologic setting, fault orientation, fault ... Full description.

ShakeMaps, a product of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program, are near-real-time maps of ground motion and shaking intensity that are produced following significant earthquakes. They appear as a set of links keyed to areas which have recently experienced an earthquake. The maps display instrumental intensity (modified Mercalli scale), peak ground acceleration, and ...

This online mapping application produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) allows users to generate and print hazard maps of any area in the United States. Hazard data is available for floods, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. The map can be navigated by entering a street address, city, and ZIP code or by using the cursor to move east, west, north, or south and to zoom ... Full description.
