Abstract:

The paper is based on data for the largest earthquakes magnitude 7 or above in the interval 1897-1964. Strain energy release and numbers of earthquakes are studied both in relation to their time and space distribution. The circum-Pacific belt exhibits two pronounced concentrations of strain energy release, in its NW and SE part. There is a general decrease of seismic activity over the period investigated. The whole material used is presented in a table, probably the most complete list of large earthquakes so far published.
