Triggering of earthquakes of Azov-Black Sea basin by seiche deformation of the ground

Purpose. Evaluation of possible causes of earthquakes in the area of waters by comparing the Earth's surface deformations, caused by their own variations of water, with deformations, caused by stress from pressure created ponds. Method. The method is based on the hypothesis of the possibility of excitation of the earthquake as a result of the fatigue defects, which accumulated in the intense tectonic fault due to oscillation of seiche-triggered wave. Lithosphere deformations, caused by pressure of seiche-triggered waves, form the lattice of antinode lines. Results.
