The Japanese Earthquake of 1923


MR. K. SUDA, of the Imperial Marine Observatory at Kobe, has recently issued a detailed and interesting report on the great Japanese earthquake.1 It is based on an examination of all the seismograms obtained at Japanese observatories and on an exploration of the central tract from September 10 to October 12. The following is an abstract, not of the whole memoir, but of those portions which have not been fully treated in earlier papers.2
