Abstract:
For the purpose of the Wyoming Earthquake Database IMS, the WSGS 100 Years of Earthquakes in Wyoming (1871-1970) seismic data do not contain magnitudes; rather, the data contain intensity (Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale). The earthquakes in the WSGS database are historical events for which a magnitude has not been calculated; however, intensities have been assigned to events based on regional reports of shaking associated with a specific earthquake.
Purpose: To provide users with epicenter data in the state of Wyoming.
