Although body-wave magnitude mb (as well as surface-wave magnitude Ms ) is rapidly being supplanted by moment magnitude MW as the magnitude of record for moderate to large earthquakes, the first, automatically determined teleseismic estimate of earthquake size is still mb . While efforts are underway to implement various automated estimates of MW , these have not, to date, proven entirely successful, nor are they rapid enough to satisfy the rapid reporting requirements of the National… CONTINUE READING
