Regional seismic monitoring in the IMW Region continues to rely on a geographic patchwork of seismic networks, involving both stably-funded and unstably-funded operations. Well-established networks cover most of Utah, Nevada, and Montana. Throughout the IMW Region and especially in Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona the challenges are to achieve adequate geographic coverage of seismically hazardous areas, especially in gaps between existing networks and in areas that have been historically neglected; stable network operations in areas where seismic hazard and/or risk warrants continuous seismic monitoring; and coordinated data exchange, uniform earthquake reporting and response, and compilation of homogenous earthquake catalogs for more systematically defined regions of responsibility.
