What are Content Sets?

Content Sets are topics or regions we cover.

aed = General geophysical topics, no special region, all-purpose
alaska = Geophysical topics in Alaska
basin = The Basin and Range Region of US
cascadia = The Cascadia region of US
escope = About The EarthScope Program
newmadrid = The New Madrid Region of US
