About this book

Detailed catalogue of earthquakes in this region, from the earliest recordings to the present day, which are then placed in a geophysical framework.

'Once again the authors are to be congratulated on a painstaking piece of research that is now the starting point for anyone working on the seismicity of this region ! The price is reasonable, given the obvious quality of the data and its presentation.' Martin Degg, Geoscientist
