Abstract

This catalogue lists about 20,000 seismic events which occurred in EC member countries, Switzerland and Austria. It was prepared on the basis of already existing national catalogues and includes historical data, as well as present day data. All historical data are adjusted as far as possible to the same intensity scale (MSK-scale) to make them suitable for computerisation. Present day data include instrumental and macroseismic data. Instrumental data are expressed in terms of magnitude (Richter scale), while macroseismic data are given in intensities. Compilation of seismic data can provide a basis for statistically supported studies of site selection procedures and the qualitative assessment of seismic risks.
