The temporal variation of the activity of intermediate and deep focus earthquakes for the period from 1904 to 1974 is investigated on the basis of a uniform body-wave magnitude scale. The mo scale has been traditionally used for intermediate and deep focus earthquakes. However, the period of seismic waves and the Q function used for the magnitude determination have changed as a function of time, so that uniform evaluation of the activity is difficult. In this study, we used a body-wave… CONTINUE READING
