It is a function of amount of energy released at focus and is independent of the place of observation. General form of all magnitude scales M = log (A/T)max + f (A, h) + Cs + Cr Where A = max. amplitude in thousandths of mm, T = period of the seismic wave in seconds, f = correction factor for epicentral distance (A) and focal depth (h), Cs = correction factor for the seismological station, and Cr = regional correction factor. Magnitude Scales Magnitude scales are based on a few simple assumptions - For a given source-receiver geometry larger events will produce wave arrivals of larger amplitudes at the seismic station The decay of ground displacement amplitudes with epicentral distance and their dependence on source depth h, i.e. the effects of geometric spreading and attenuation of the considered seismic waves, is known at least empirically in a statistical sense. It can be compensated by a so-called calibration function (, h). The latter is the log of the inverse of the reference amplitude Ao(, h) of an event of zero magnitude, i.e. (V,h)= log Ao(, h). The logarithm is used because of the enormous variability of earthquake displacement amplitudes Magnitudes should be a measure of seismic energy released and thus be proportional to the velocity of ground motion, i.e. to A/T with T as the period of the considered wave The the maximum value (A/T)max in a wave group for which (, h) is known should provide the best and most stable estimate of the event magnitude The effects of prevailing azimuth dependent source directivity can be corrected by a regional source correction term Cr and the influence of local site effects or amplitudes depending on local crustal structure, near-surface rock type, soft soil cover and/or topography may be accounted for by a station correction Cs Local Magnitude, ML ML = log Amax - log A o ML = log A - 2.48 + 2.76 log A MD = a o + a 1 log D+ a 2 A Duration Magnitude, MD Body Wave Magnitudes (MB) Mb = log (A/T) + Q (h, A ) Where A = actual ground motion amplitude in micrometer, and T = corresponding period in second.
