 Abstract
Equations that could estimate the local magnitude of historical earthquakes, being difficult to calculate, in Sino-Korea craton was obtained using instrumental earthquake data for 22 Korean and 46 northeastern Chinese events. The obtained equations from intensity is . The equation from felt area FA for the Korean Peninsula is . When the information on earthquake damage, effects, and felt area is all recorded at the same time, the former equation of intensity is more feasible than that of felt area due to uncertainty in earthquake felt area.
