CLOSURE ON CHARACTERISTICS OF ROCK MOTIONS DURING EARTHQUAKES

THE AUTHORS NOTE A TRANSCRIPTION ERROR IN FIGURE 9 OF THE ORIGINAL PAPER IN WHICH THE UNITS FOR EPICENTRAL DISTANCE IN THE ABSCISSA SHOULD HAVE BEEN DESIGNATED IN KILOMETERS RATHER THAN IN MILES. THIS CHANGE WOULD AFFECT THE POSITIONS OF THE CURVES ATTRIBUTED TO GUTENBERG AND RICHTER IN TWO FIGURES, INCREASING THE SPEED OF THE PLOTTED RESULTS AS SHOWN IN A PRESENTED FIGURE FOR EARTHQUAKES FOR MAGNITUDE OF M = 7. HOWEVER ANOTHER FIGURE SHOWS THAT THE EFFECT OF THESE CHANGES ON THE VALUES FINALLY RECOMMENDED IS VERY SMALL. REFERENCES: CHARACTERISTICS OF ROCK MOTIONS DURING EARTHQUAKES, H. BOLTON SEED, I. M.
