Hydrodynamic and seismic response to teleseismic waves of strong remote earthquakes in Caucasus

The aim of this paper was to analyze the hydroseismic response of water level in boreholes during the passage of wave trains of remote strong earthquakes and the pattern of local seismic events, dynamically triggered by these earthquakes. As the exact type of forcing (certain phase of wave train) can be identified, the interpretation of hydroseismic effects is more straightforward and could render new important information on hydroseismic processes and, possibly, on the local stress state in a given block of the Earth crust. We tried to find out which parameter of the teleseismic wave dominates the hydroseismic response (susceptibility)—epicentral distance or velocity.
