Abstract


Investigation of the time and magnitude distribution
of the fore- and aftershocks of the Cremasta lake earthquake which occurred
on February 5, 1966 is made. The deformation characteristics and
spatial distribution of these shocks is also studied. Strong evidence is presented
that the foreshocks and the main shock have been triggered by the
waterloading of the Cremasta artificial lake.
