Abstract (EDOC: 6752)
Near the E edge of Leipzig (GDR) an earthquake occurred on February 20, 1982, with an epicentral intensity of 5o. The last comparable earthquakes in this area were observed in 1905 and 1914. These events and the seismic activity of the focal region 'Northwest Saxonia' are presented. The source parameters of the 1982 earthquake determined from the polarities and the spectra of different wave types are given.-from Authors
