Abstract

A spatially varying model of the detection/location capabilities of the Southern Great Basin seismic network (SGBSN) has been derived that is based on simple empirical relations and statistics. This permits use of almost all the catalog data gathered; instead of ignoring data that are below the threshold of completeness, a spatially varying threshold model is developed so that subregions having lower completeness levels than the network as a whole can be outlined and the completeness level of each sub-region determined. The predominantly aseismic regions located include the area west of the Death Valley/Furnace Creek fault system and an almost complete absence of events at Yucca Mountain. -from Author
