Electronic Supplement to
Plate-tectonic analysis of shallow seismicity:
Apparent boundary width, beta, corner magnitude, coupled lithosphere thickness, and coupling in 7 tectonic settings
by Peter Bird and Yan Y. Kagan
This supplement presents all the global seismic subcatalogs of shallow earthquakes created and analyzed in this study.
Plots of log-cumulative-number vs. magnitude are also included for maximum-probability subcatalogs.
Note that no original earthquake locations or mechanism determinations were performed;
the new work consists of dividing shallow seismicity by plate boundary setting in systematic ways,
and analyzing the frequency/moment relations of the resulting subcatalogs.
