Distribution of earthquake sequences in the Mediterranean

  • 23 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The results that were obtained by the study of space distribution of individual types of earthquake sequences in the Mediterranean are summarized. The present results apply only to large earthquakes, because with weak shocks it is not possible to present reliable results owing to the incompleteness of material.
