Local earthquake quantification



Local earthquake quantification



Tectonophysics 84(1): 33-39



The diversity of noise conditions, and, consequently, the diversity of types of seismographs that are found in different environments, make it unlikely that a single method of determining magnitudes for local earthquakes will be developed. In each area local studies must be carried out to determine the appropriate attenuation-distance function, taking into account known structural features. Each locally determined magnitude scale should be related to either a standard teleseismic scale, or preferably, to Richter's original local magnitude scale, ML.
