Abstract:

The aftershocks located in the Central Andes between January 1950 and June 1963 are considered. It appears that data in that period were too scarce to obtain a number of locations sufficient to give satisfactory results by this method this region has more earthquakes deeper than normal, which prevents a fuller use of the method nevertheless it may give acceptable results if applied to the last years.
