I am trying to understand Deterministic Seismic Hazard analysis for which I believe seismic waves corresponding to a seismic sources (such as faults) are required to prepare the Gutenberg Richter curve and select an appropriate earthquake corresponding to a particular return period. However I do not know from where I can obtain the seismic data?
Perhaps the Global Significant Earthquake Database request form from NOAA would help?
I am interested in the same topic. Recently, research on the determinism behind earthquake triggering has been revived based on these studies from last year:
- Ide, Satoshi, Suguru Yabe, and Yoshiyuki Tanaka. "Earthquake potential revealed by tidal influence on earthquake size-frequency statistics." Nature Geoscience 9.11 (2016): 834-837.
- van der Elst, Nicholas J., et al. "Fortnightly modulation of San Andreas tremor and low-frequency earthquakes." Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2016): 201524316.
- Delorey, Andrew A., Nicholas J. van der Elst, and Paul A. Johnson. "Tidal triggering of earthquakes suggests poroelastic behavior on the San Andreas Fault." Earth and Planetary Science Letters 460 (2017): 164-170.
A few years before these results were published, another seismologist did an extensive evaluation:
"Characteristics of the earthquake-triggering pattern by Earth tides were studied utilizing over five hundred thousand events from an earthquake catalogue (NEIC-USGS) for global earthquakes with a magnitude range of 2 to 10." -- Vinayak G. Kolvankar, "Sun, Moon and Earthquakes", New Concepts in Global Tectonics Newsletter, no. 60, September, 2011.
So the best bet is to look at the NEIC-USGS database. You should be able to cull from quite a few events across the intensity spectrum.
