  1. The values listed under MWSPEC are the moment magnitudes calculated from the spectral fitting method documented in Edwards et al. (2010). The quality rating (Q) is defined in Table 2. Italicized three-letter abbreviations in the last column correspond to labels used for focal mechanisms in Figs. 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and Additional file 1: Table S4
  2. *Based on signal characteristic, we interpret this as an earthquake. However, we cannot entirely rule out the possibility that the signal is associated with a blast due to its shallow source and the proximity to a quarry
