ANSS Catalog Source Code Tables




ANSS Catalog Home | Search | Maps and lists | Details | Caveats | Links

The following table provides the network codes for the ANSS network that contribute earthquake information to the catalog. Most networks use their own network code as the ANSS location and magnitude source code for events that they contribute to the catalog.
