Paleoseismodeformations of hard rocks in the Karelian isthmus
Within the limits of the Fennoscandian (Baltic) crystalline shield, late and postglacial shattering of hard rocks due to strong ancient seismic effects has been studied at several sites [1–5]. TheExpand

The evolution of the stress state in Southern California based on the geomechanical model and current seismicity
A three-dimensional geomechanical model of Southern California, which includes the mountain topography, fault tectonics, and main structural boundaries (the top of the lower crust and the Moho), isExpand

New Approach to the Characterization of Mmax and of the Tail of the Distribution of Earthquake Magnitudes
We develop a new method for the statistical estimation of the tail of the distribution of earthquake sizes recorded in the Harvard catalog of seismic moments converted to mW-magnitudes (1977–2004 andExpand

Characterization of the Tail of the Distribution of Earthquake Magnitudes by Combining the GEV and GPD Descriptions of Extreme Value Theory
The present work is a continuation and improvement of the method suggested in Pisarenkoet al. (Pure Appl Geophys 165:1–42, 2008) for the statistical estimation of the tail of the distribution ofExpand

Seismicity in the generalized vicinity of large earthquakes
Earthquake catalogs are used to construct a generalized space-time vicinity of large earthquakes and to investigate the seismicity behavior in such areas. We investigate the character of the inverseExpand

The instability of the Mmax parameter and an alternative to its using
The work presents statistical methods for estimating the distribution parameters of rare, strong earthquakes. Using the two main theorems of extreme value theory (EVT), the distribution of T-maximumExpand

Structural Position and Parameters of the Paleoearthquakes in the Area of Vottovaara Mountain (Middle Karelia, Eastern Part of the Fennoscandian Shield)
The traces of strong earthquakes in the territory of Fennoscandia have been recorded by many scientists already for several decades. The seismogenerating paleostructures, such as postglacialExpand

The typical seismic behavior in the vicinity of a large earthquake
Abstract The Global Centroid Moment Tensor catalog (GCMT) was used to construct the spatio-temporal generalized vicinity of a large earthquake (GVLE) and to investigate the behavior of seismicity inExpand

Comprehensive paleoseismic geological studies in a key site in southwestern Kola Peninsula (Northeast of the Fennoscandian Shield)
This paper considers the results of detailed paleoseismic and geological investigations in a key site in the wall of the Imandra Lake depression (Kola Peninsula Region, Northeast of the FennoscandianExpand

Megaearthquake of March 11, 2011, in Japan: The event magnitude and the character of the aftershock sequence
The great Japanese earthquake (GJE) of March 11, 2011, was a megaevent. The conditions under which such seismic catastrophes occurred are discussed. The regime of the aftershocks of this megaevent isExpand
