MetadataShow full item record
Since the Pueblo Viejo-Quixal Seismograph was installed in February 1979, approximately 46 months have elapsed. By the end of July 1982, more than 6000 local and regional earthquakes were recorded and approximately 3500 events were located. The data, data analysis and interpretation of the data up to 10 March 1981 were already reported in the following: Preliminary Report 1 (25 April 1979), Preliminary Report 2 (10 November 1979), Preliminary Report 3 (29 July 1980), Technical Report 4 (10 April 1981). The objective of this report is twofold: (1) to summarize the results of the seismic program following the proceeding period (11 March 1981 through 16 April 1982), and (2) to review the major findings uncovered under this program. To facilitate reviewing the scope, some of the data presented in the previous reports will be duplicated and described again in this text.
