|Abstract: ||Northeast India region is one of the most seismically active areas in the world. Events data
for the period 1897-2010 used in this study has been largely compiled from global ISC,
NEIC and GCMT databases. Historical seismicity catalog of Gupta et al (1986) and some
events data from bulletins of India Meteorological Department are also used. Orthogonal
regression relations for conversion of body and surface wave magnitudes to Mw,HRVD based
on events data for the period 1978-2006 have been derived. An OSR relationship has also
been obtained for scaling of intensity estimates to Mw,NEIC using 126 global intensity events
with intensity vi or greater during the period 1975-2010.
Magnitude of completeness and GR recurrence parameters values have been
determined for the declustered homogenized catalog pertaining to four different time
periods namely, 1897-1963,1964-1990, 1964-2000 and 1964-2010. The Mc and 'b' values
are observed to decrease and increase, respectively, with addition of newer data with time.
The study region has been subdivided into nine seismogenic zones keeping in view the
spatial variations in earthquake occurrence and prevalent tectonics. Mc, 'b' and 'a' values have
been estimated in respect of each zone, and the variations in the values of these parameters
have been analysed.
Keywords: Northeast India region, Orthogonal Standard Regression, Magnitude of
Completeness, seismogenic zones.|
