Determination of focal depth from macroseismic data

  • L. Egyed
  • A. Meskó


Authors give a diagram and procedure based onKövesligethy's formula for determining focal depth from macroseismic data. The method has the advantages that a) it supplies all the constants characterising, the macroseismal area, b) the personal effects are reduced, c) only one diagram is necessary.
