The Catalogue is presented in the csv format as a combination of the:
- main catalogue,
- supplementary catalogue,
- kmz-file to be used with Google Earth.
The supplementary catalogue contains those earthquakes that are believed to be large enough yet either their location or magnitude or both are highly uncertain due to lack or contradiction in available arrival time or amplitude and period data.
Forthcoming release of associated arrival time and amplitude data is discussed in Extension Project.
