Record #29353:

Notes on the aseismicity of Antarctica / F.F. Evison.

Title: Notes on the aseismicity of Antarctica / F.F. Evison.
Author(s): Evison, F. F.
Date: 1957.
In: New Zealand Journal of Geology and Geophysics. (1957.), Vol. 10(2) (1957)
Abstract: Compared with other continents, Antarctica is remarkably free from earthquakes, particularly in view of active volcanism and other signs of instability. If earthquake activity is affected by variations in the thickness of the ice cap, any future earthquake of even moderate magnitude may be expected to yield useful information about the source mechanism of earthquakes and also about ice-cap dynamics.
Notes:

New Zealand Journal of Geology and Geophysics. Vol. 10(2) :479-483 (1957).

Keywords: 550.34 -- Seismology.
(*7) -- Antarctic regions.
