A parametric earthquake catalogue for the territory of the former Soviet Union has been compiled, based on an existing catalogue. Earthquake parameters, such as magnitude, have been harmonized and uniquely reported, and the intensities have been expressed in the MSK scale. This catalogue, called FSUCAT (Former Soviet Union catalogue), contains approximately 5 270 earthquakes covering the time period of circa 2000 BC to 1988. It is accompanied by epicentral maps, which are compiled for characteristic time intervals (up to 1800, 1801-1900, up to 1900, 1901-88, up to 1988), representing historical periods of only macroseismic or both instrumental and macroseismic data.
