the scientific discipline that studies the geological conditions of earthquakes. The chief objects of seismotectonic research are the epigeosynclinal orogens of the Alpine and Pacific Ocean foldings, which arose against the background of Mesozoic and Cenozoic geosynclines; geosynclines currently in the phase of the initial orogenic process; epicratonic orogens—areas of Anthropogenic activation of tectonic movement within previously consolidated structures; modern continental and oceanic rifts; Benioff zones; and sectors of intensive manifestation of recent tectonic movements. Systematic seismotectonic research began in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Such research serves as a basis for work in seismic zoning and microzoning.
