REFMC 1929 - 2012 (Romanian Earthquake Focal Mechanism Catalogue)

Published: 6 November 2020| Version 3 | DOI: 10.17632/mykkx4gygy.3


REFMC 1929 - 2012 (Romanian Earthquake Focal Mechanism Catalogue) was compiled by Mircea Radulian, Andrei Bălă and Dragoș Toma-Dănilă from the National Institute for Earth Physics (INFP), Romania ( and comprises of earthquakes in Romania, in the 1929 - 2012 period, for which we were able to compute or retrieve focal mechanism parameters. The catalogue divides earthquakes into two categories: crustal earthquakes (h < 50 km) and intermediate-depth earthquakes (h ≥ 50 km, all in the Vrancea area). Information regarding the catalogue was published in two separate papers which we invite you to read and cite: 1. Radulian M., Bala A., Popescu E., Toma-Danila D.
