Statistics of Indian earthquakes - Frequency energy distribution

R. K. S. CIIOUHAN, V. K. SHRIVASTAVA

Abstract


Frequency-magnitude and energy-magnitude distribution
of the Indian earthquakes have been studied for both shallow and
intermediate earthquakes using data from 1910 to 1969. Secular energy
released by the Indian earthquakes has been studied by considering cumulative
energy release and it is found that these results may be used to estimate
the size of largest conceivable earthquakes for shallow and intermediate
focal depths.
