Catalog of Earthquake Hypocenters at Alaskan Volcanoes: January 1 through December 31, 2010

By James P. Dixon, U.S. Geological Survey, Scott D. Stihler, University of Alaska Fairbanks, John A. Power, U.S. Geological Survey, and Cheryl K. Searcy, U.S. Geological Survey


Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) located 3,405 earthquakes, of which 2,846 occurred within 20 kilometers of the 33 volcanoes with seismograph subnetworks. There was no significant seismic activity in 2010 at these monitored volcanic centers. Seismograph subnetworks with severe outages in 2009 were repaired in 2010 resulting in three volcanic centers (Aniakchak, Korovin, and Veniaminof) being relisted in the formal list of monitored volcanoes. This catalog includes locations and statistics of the earthquakes located in 2010 with the station parameters, velocity models, and other files used to locate these earthquakes.
