The magnitude distribution of three seismic sequences occurred in Morocco were investigated by means of the Tsallis-based non-extensive analysis. The non-extensive parameters were estimated by means of the Levenberg-Marquadt nonlinear least square fitting method. It was found that the q value could be a good indicator of the complexity of seismic phenomena. Such findings could contribute in better understanding the dynamics of seismicity and suggesting a unifying view of earthquake occurrence.

Abstract. Using the Taiwan Central Weather Bureau earthquake catalogue, the crustal seismicity of Taiwan was analyzed by means of a nonextensive approach. The time span of the analyzed catalogue is

Nonextensivity and universality in the earthquake preparation process.
It is argued that footprints found in PEME may indicate the fracture of the backbone of strong entities that hinders the relative motion of the fault planes, and uses the q-Tsallis entropy as a measure of organization.
Nonextensive models for earthquakes.
The fragment-asperity interaction model recently introduced by Sotolongo-Costa and Posadas is revisited by considering a different definition for mean values in the context of Tsallis nonextensive statistics and introducing a scale between the earthquake energy and the size of fragment epsilon proportional to r3.
