Several years ago Nikolaev and Vereshagina (1991a, 1991b) reveald that strong earthquakes and underground nuclear explosions trigger M>4.5 earthquakes located in remote seismoactive regions. Apparently, this fact is very important for understanding physical processes in the Earth, because it shows that relatively weak seismic impacts could effect on seismic regime.
