The 2019 Mw 6.4 and Mw 7.1 Ridgecrest earthquake sequence occurred in the eastern California shear zone (ECSZ). The mainshock ruptured the Little Lake fault zone, and aftershocks extended from the Garlock fault in the south to the southern end of the 1872 M 7.5 Owens Valley earthquake rupture in the north. We present data from the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN) and partner seismic networks recorded by the SCSN in the region. These timeā€series data and related products such as the SCSN earthquake picks and catalogs, available from the Southern California Earthquake Data Center, provide the most comprehensive seismic datasets for the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquake sequence.
