Abstract: The World Stress Map (WSM) database is a global compilation of information on the crustal present-day stress field. It is a collaborative project between academia and industry that aims to characterize the stress pattern and to understand the stress sources. It commenced in 1986 as a project of the International Lithosphere Program under the leadership of Mary-Lou Zoback. From 1995-2008 it was a project of the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities headed first by Karl Fuchs and then by Friedemann Wenzel. Since 2009 the WSM is maintained at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences and since 2012 the WSM is a member of the ICSU World Data System. All stress information is analysed and compiled in a standardized format and quality-ranked for reliability and comparability on a global scale. The WSM database release 2016 contains 42,870 data records within the upper 40 km of the Earth’s crust. The data are provided in three formats: Excel-file (wsm2016.xlsx), comma separated fields (wsm2016.csv) and with a zipped google Earth input file (wsm2016_google.zip). Data records with reliable A-C quality are displayed in the World Stress Map (doi:10.5880/WSM.2016.002). Further detailed information on the WSM quality ranking scheme, guidelines for the various stress indicators, and software for stress map generation and the stress pattern analysis is available at www.world-stress-map.org.

Abstract: The Stress Map of the Mediterranean and Central Europe 2016 displays 5011 A-C quality stress data records of the upper 40 km of the Earth’s crust from the WSM database release 2016 (Heidbach et al, 2016, http://doi.org/10.5880/WSM.2016.001). Focal mechanism solutions determined as being potentially unreliable (labelled as Possible Plate Boundary Events in the database) are not displayed. Further detailed information on the WSM quality ranking scheme, guidelines for the various stress indicators, and software for stress map generation and the stress pattern analysis is available at www.world-stress-map.org.

Abstract: Die Spannungskarte Deutschland zeigt die Orientierung der gegenwärtigen maximalen horizontalen Spannung (SHmax) in der Erdkruste. Unter der Annahme, dass die vertikale Spannung (SV) eine Hauptspannung ist, legt SHmax die Orientierung des 3D Spannungstensors festgelegt; die minimale horizontale Spannung Shmin ist entsprechend senkrecht zu SHmax. In der Spannungskarte sind die SHmax Orientierungen als Linien unterschiedlicher Länge dargestellt. Die Länge der Linie ist dabei ein Maß für die Datenqualität und das Symbol zeigt die Methode und die Farbe das Spannungsregime an. Daten mit E-Qualität sind ohne weitere Information als Punkte in der Karte dargestellt. Die Spannungsdaten sind frei zugänglich und Bestandteil des World Stress Map (WSM) Projektes. Weitere Informationen zu den Daten und Kriterien der Datenanalyse und Qualitätszuordnung befinden sich auf der WSM Internetseite unter http://www.world-stress-map.org. The English version of the World Stress Map Germany is available via http://doi.org/10.5880/WSM.Germany2016_en.
