Abstract

We compute high-precision earthquake locations using southern California pick and waveform data from 1981 to 2005. Our latest results are significantly improved compared to our previous catalog by the following: (1) We locate events with respect to a new crustal P and S velocity model using three-dimensional ray tracing, (2) we examine six more years of waveform data and compute cross-correlation results for many more pairs than our last analysis, and (3) we compute locations within similar event clusters using a new method that applies a robust fitting method to obtain the best locations satisfying all the differential time constraints from the waveform cross correlation. These results build on the relocated catalogs of Hauksson and Shearer (2005) and Shearer et al. (2005) and provide additional insight regarding the fine-scale fault structure in southern California and the relationship between the San Andreas Fault (SAF) and nearby seismicity. In particular, we present results for two regions in which the seismicity near the southern SAF seems to align on dipping faults.
