Deep-Focus Earthquakes


WITH reference to Mr. Scrase's letter in NATURE of Mar. 28, p. 486, a few additional remarks concerning deep-focus earthquakes may be of interest. Such earthquakes are comparatively rare occurrences, and in the years 1918–1926 the late Prof. H. H. Turner reported only 138 in the “International Seismological Summary”.
