Abstract

This paper is in continuation of previous investigations (Gutenberg
and Richter, Paper I, 1942; Paper I I , 1956).
The earthquake magnitude has statistical and other uses independent
of the relation between magnitude and energy. Indeed, it is possible
that there is no complete one-to-one correlation between magnitude
and energy for large and complex tectonic events. Even so, a
mean or representative relation is a legitimate object of inquiry.
