The Quake‐Catcher Network (QCN) is an expanding seismic array made possible by thousands of participants who volunteered time and resources from their computers to record seismic data using low‐cost accelerometers (http://qcn.stanford.edu/; last accessed December 2014). Sensors based on Micro‐Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) technology have rapidly improved over the last few years due to the demand of the private sector (e.g., automobiles, cell phones, and laptops). For strong‐motion applications, low‐cost MEMS accelerometers have promising features due to an increasing resolution and near‐linear phase and amplitude response (Cochran, Lawrence, Christensen, and Jakka, 2009; Clayton et al., 2011;...
