Peculiarities of Ground Seismic Reaction in Kishinev, Moldova
Systematic instrumental observations on the grounds with various engineering — geological properties were started in Moldova in the 1970-s. Three subsequent strong intermediate-depth Carpathian earthquakes: 4.03.1977 (M = 7.2), 30.08.1986 (M = 7.0), 30.05.1990 (M = 6.9) have also provided rich macroseismic material.
Joint analysis of instrumental and macroseismic data has revealed some peculiarities in the manifestation of different local geologico-engineering factors during the above mentioned earthquakes. Hence, it has been proposed to re-consider the existing practice of evaluation the seismic hazard in respect to this territory.
