Division of Radiation Programs and Earth Sciences.; Weston Observatory.]. The seismicity of the central New Hebrides convergent plate boundary is investigated with three sets of data: (1) large earthquakes (Ms>) for the past 75 years, (2) moderate-sized earthquakes.

New England and the St. Lawrence River valley: Earthquake epicenters in central New England, upstate New York, and adjacent Canada form a northwest-trending belt of seismicity, sometimes called the Boston-Ottawa zone (Diment et al., ; Sbar and Sykes, ).

Abstract. A comprehensive study of the observations of seismology provides widely based support for the new global tectonics founded on the hypotheses of continental drift, sea-floor spreading, transform faults, and underthrusting of the lithosphere at island by: least one plate is an oceanic plate.

The new global tectonics suggests new approaches to a variety of topics in seismology including earthquake prediction, the and accurate location of seismic events, and the general problem of earth structure.

Plates can move apart at a boundary. This type of boundary is called a divergent boundary. It is also referred to as a constructive plate boundary, as new material is being produced at the boundary surface.

This type of boundary is dominated by normal faulting although other types of faulting may be observed. Hot magma rises from the mantle at mid-ocean ridges pushing the plates apart.

Ebel, Principal Investigator Weston. Much new information about Earth's seismicity and ocean bathymetry emerged during the two decades following World War II.

This information, together with the discovery that almost the entire floor of the oceans is a vast areal “tape recording” of the reversals of the Earth's magnetic field, led, in the s, to the most important revolution in the history of geology.

A STUDY OF NEW ENGLAND SEISMICITY The New England Seismic Network currently consists of 14 broadband three­component, 4 short­period vertical, and 8 strong­motion stations. The coordinates of the stations are given in Table 2, and maps of the weak­ and strong­motion networks are shown in Figures 1 and 2, respectively.

The study region has experienced four devastating great earthquakes in the recent past, the M s [Oldham, ], revised M w [Bilham and England, ] in the Shillong Plateau, the M w (U.S.

Data collected by temporary seismic networks and individual stations over a 7-yr period in the Svalbard Archipelago are integrated and used to study the seismicity and present-day tectonics of the archipelago and surrounding regions.
