Abstract : A simple, consistent, and transportable magnitude scale for regional phases is useful and often required in order to (a) improve the source discrimination capability, (b) determine the station detection threshold, and (c) estimate the explosive yield. A convenient, and hence recommended, magnitude formula for Lg phase is given.
