Abstract:

A working INGRES database sov has been established at the Center for Seismic Studies which contains the seismicity data reported in the annual Soviet publications, Earthquakes in the USSR in 1973, etc. for the 1973 through 1979 time period. The total information reported is documented with the exception of reports of a local intensity measures which are simply noted as being available. The data have been extensively reviewed for seismological consistency and have been related to the available National Earthquake Information Service NEIS and International Seismological Center ISC epicenter data files available at the Center for Seismic Studies. A working cross-reference is thus available for all events reported by both the Soviet bulletins and the other two data sources. The files are compatible with other CSS databases but include extensions to document additional data available from the Soviet reports. All events have been regionalized in accordance with the exclusive geographical regions defined in Soviet publications and summary data are presented both annually and by the primary Soviet regions.
