SEISMOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS

 

The observation data are pooled together to form seismological summary bulletins and catalogues.

 

The Centre of Geophysical Monitoring has available summary bulletins of data obtained at the seismic stations of Belarus since 1965 until the present.

 

The bulletins present data of earthquakes as follow: station code; date of records; type of recording instrument; record component; wave name and definition; universal time UTC of arrival (hour, min., sec.); wave period (sec.) and amplitude for components (in microns); P- and S- arrival time difference (min.-sec.); epicentral distance (degrees and/or kilometers); magnitude for appropriate wave type.

 

The Catalogue of Earthquakes of Belarus since historical time till the present has been compiled and is being added new data. The territory restricted between the coordinates: φ = 51.0 ÷ 56.0° N; λ = 23.0 ÷ 33.0° E is under investigation. The Catalogue includes the following earthquake data: date of record; universal time (hour, min., sec.); epicentral coordinates; P- and S- arrival time difference (min.-sec.); epicentral distance (km); magnitude; information source.

 

Bulletins of data processing and a Catalogue of earthquakes occurred in the Soligorsk region, as well as the Map of epicenters of Soligorsk earthquakes are being developed at the Centre.

 

The modern seismicity of Belarus is mainly evident in the region of the Starobin potassium salt deposit and is “induced”. Soligorsk is the administrative centre of this region and is situated close to the mining fields and other mining industry works.

 

The Catalogue of the East European Platform (EEP) presenting seismic events since historical time till the present within the territory restricted between the coordinates: φ = 51.0 ÷ 59.8° N; λ = 19.5 ÷ 33.5° E. The EEP Catalogue includes the following earthquake data: date of record; universal time (hour, min., sec.); epicentral coordinates; magnitude; intensity; focal depth; epicentral location; information source.
