Since the PUEBLO VIEJO-QUIXAL Seismograph Network was installed in February 1979, 52 months have elapsed. The results of data analyses and interpretation of the seismic data were submitted to INDE in the following reports: Preliminary Report #l (25 April 1979), Preliminary Report #2 (10 November 1979), Preliminary Report #3 (29 July 1980), Technical Report #l (10 April 1981), andTechnical Report #2 (22 October 1982). To enhance the real time monitoring capability, the Computerized Seismic Monitoring System (COSMOS) was installed at the Campamento for the Pueblo Viejo Quixal Seismograph Network in January 1983. Meantime, following the completion of the construction, loading of the Pueblo Viejo reservoir started on 25 January 1983. Therefore, the purpose of this report is focused as follows: (1) To describe the function of the newly installed COSMOS, (2) To review the seismic activity in the vicinity of the Pueblo Viejo dam prior to impounding, and (3) To describe the seismic activity during the period of water loading.
