Event 72861106 M=0.50 - 3D View

This page uses the Three.js 3D JavaScript library to show real-time double-difference hypocenter locations of earthquakes in Northern California. The box below is centered on event 72861106, which has the following hypoDD-RT solution:

Date: 2017/08/05 | Time: 17:46:17.450 | Latitude: 38.74140 | Longitude: -122.73398 | Depth: 2.316 | Magnitude: 0.50
Quality: 1 | Shift: 1.071 | Version: 0.1

The high-resolution background seismicity included in the box comes from two double-difference catalogs. Hypocenters for the years 1984-2011 are taken from the DD catalog for Northern California (NCAeqDD.v201112.1). Hypocenters from 2010 up to present are taken from the real-time double-difference catalog DD-RT (NCAeqDD-RT.v201001). Earthquakes from the DD catalog are represented by gray dots, those from the DD-RT catalog by colored dots.

There are 14406 earthquakes in the box. Magnitude cutoff is 1.5 (except for events within the last week).
