Example text

It can also be the case that the city mentioned is evidently not in the epicentral area but no idea is given of the other districts involved. Sometimes, two or three such centres are mentioned, so there is a reasonable chance of locating the earthquake in the area between them, even though no details from that area survive. Furthermore, although the urban population is distributed more evenly through the country than it is in Egypt, the major towns themselves are aligned along the north-south axis of the central uplands, and are relatively far apart.

41 The recent Egyptian earthquake does at least demonstrate that shocks can originate relatively close to Cairo, and that such interpretations need not necessarily be too inaccurate. Even when information does exist from other Egyptian localities, the distribution of population, and therefore of intensity data-points, is effectively onedimensional, making it difficult to draw meaningful isoseismal maps. While it may be possible to determine the highest intensities experienced along the northsouth axis of the Nile Valley, the absence of control to east or west makes it difficult to determine the true epicentral region.
