Isoseismal Maps of Russia

These isoseismal maps of the Russian Federation have been developed by the Russian Academy of Sciences under the government-sponsored General Seismic Zoning Program (OSR-97). The maps show the seismic intensity levels of the Medvedev-Sponheuer-Karnik scale (MSK-64) assigned to earthquake sites within the three regions of the Russian Federation - the European part of Russia, Siberia, and the Russia`s Far East. The maps are grouped by region. Each set of maps includes three maps, covering 10-percent (Map A), 5-percent (Map B), and 1-percent (Map C) probability of increase over mapped indexes of seismic activity in a given area within a 50-year period.

Key Map

The seismic intensities shown on the maps shall be applied to sites with soils of standard profile types as specified in SNIP II-7-81, Construction in Seismic Areas. The full text of SNIP II-7-81 is readily available in English. Please contact SNIP and order your copy today!
