The paper presents generalized results of seismic-ecological monitoring from natural sources in the Russian Federation regions of different tectonic activities. The method is developed for estimating the stressed state of medium according to the energy characteristics of converted PS waves from distant earthquakes. The values of geodynamic indicators are assessed for the media of different tectonic activities, the main regularities of changes in the geodynamic environment are found, and the cyclicity of geodynamic indicators is revealed on the basis of long-term continuous monitoring. The influence of such external natural factor as distant catastrophic earthquakes on the change of geodynamic indicators of the medium’s stress state and the strengthening of seismic activity are revealed.
