Unlike the RSS Feeds, this XML file contains all available parameters, including date, location, magnitude/magnitude type, number of stations/phases used for location, distance to first station, RMS/horizontal/vertical errors, and more. The minimum magnitude of events included in the XML merged catalog varies from region to region depending upon the density of the reporting networks.

Merged Catalog in Cube Format
Cube format is a fixed-format, card-like version of the information in the merged catalog. It contains the same information provided in the XML format, except that there is no information on ‘duplicate’ event ids, which occur when networks other than the authoritative network submit information on the same event. The minimum magnitude of events included in the Cube catalog varies from region to region depending upon the density of the reporting networks. More information »
