An explanation of methods used to determine instrumentally the exact epicentre of an earthquake, also the depth of focus and the acceleration. The use of seismograms to determine (1) typical period of earthquakes in seismic areas, (2) discontinuities in the earth's interior. Strong motion seismograms as an aid to engineers in designing earthquake-proof buildings, bridges and dams.
