Seismic energy is a physical concept related to broadband information on the source radiation; this is different from seismic moment, which is related to low-frequency information. Improved estimates of seismic moment and radiated energy can improve the scientific framework for interpreting observed seismicity in terms of physical source processes. This study evaluates the utility of regional Lg waves, the dominant feature of seismograms for regional earthquakes, for the estimation of radiated… Expand
