Cluster analysis as applied to spatial-temporal structure of earthquakes of the Crimean seismoregion

© S.V. Shcherbina

The article is dedicated to revealing spatial-temporal isometric clusters for aggregations of earthquakes epicenters of the Crimean seismoregion. It has been found out during the analysis that the method not only makes possible to reveal the fine structure of earthquakes succession but also to find out a correlation between the value of maximally probable earthquake within the definite seismogenic volume according to it. This result might be used as an additional one to traditional methods of Kmax evaluation.
