Abstract:

A simple, consistent, and transportable magnitude scale for regional phases is useful and often required in order to a improve the source discrimination capability, b determine the station detection threshold, and c estimate the explosive yield. A convenient, and hence recommended, magnitude formula for Lg phase is given.
