Mendocino Aftershock Experiment

Abstract: From April 27, 1992 through May 19, 1992 an array of up to eleven
3-component stations was operated in the vicinity of the April 25,
1992 Cape Mendocino Earthquake. The array operated with a variety of
sensors including broadband Guralp CMG3-ESP, Striekheisen STS-2,
mid-period Kinemetric SH, SV-1, as well as hiqher frequency 2 Hz
sensors and force balance accelerometers. This first release of data
consists of 51 of the largest and most landward located events that
occurred between April 28 and May 6; a second release will follow
which will consist of most events of magnitude > 2.0.
