- MS Network Perf Est- New Madrid Seismic Zone | Presentation/Poster
We compare predictions of network performance to observations made from an earthquake catalogue. We estimate event spectra using Brune modeling and station noise to predict the magnitude of completeness for a network and compute the location accuracy according to Peters and Crosson (1972). We compare the predicted magnitude of completeness and earthquake catalogue for the network. We find that predicted and observed magnitude of completeness agree reasonably well, with the observed result being consistently lower than the predicted.
