Abstract

The paper is devoted to the earthquake that occurred on the 28th of March 2013 in the Kholmogorsky district of the Arkhangelsk Region. It determines the coordinates of the epicentre, depth, time in the focus, and magnitude. Parameters of the earthquake according to the international seismological centres are published; information on the history of seismicity in the Arkhangelsk Region is provided.

Keywords

earthquake, seismic network, source parameters, East European Craton.
