Towards Evidences of Long-Range Correlations in Seismic Activity.

Jennifer Ribeiro, Douglas S. R. Ferreira, Andrés R. R. Papa, Ronaldo Menezes

In this work, we introduce a new methodology to construct a network of epicenters that avoids problems found in well-established methodologies when they are applied to global catalogs of seisms. The new methodology involves essentially the introduction of a time window which works as a temporal filter. Our approach is more generic and for small regions the results coincide with previous findings. The network constructed with that model has small-world properties and the distribution of node connectivity follows a non-traditional $q$-Gaussian function, where scale-free properties are present. The vertices with larger connectivity in the network correspond to the areas with very intense seismic activities in the period considered. These new results strengthen the hypothesis of long spatial and temporal correlations between earthquakes.
