A Moment Magnitude Scale
It is well known that the most widely used earthquake magnitude scales, ML (local magnitude), M, (surface wave magnitude), and mb (body wave magnitude), are, in principle, unbounded from above. It is equally well known that, in fact, they are so bounded, and the reasons for this are understood in terms of the operation of finite bandwidth instrumentation on the magnitude-dependent frequency characteristics of the elastic radiation excited by earthquake sources.

Email Address Created for Land Exchange Questions
The Southwestern Region Office of Lands and Minerals Management is overseeing and administering the land exchange and appraisal process which includes the 2,422-acre Oak Flat Federal Parcel. All questions about the land exchange and appraisal process should be emailed to SM.FS.firstname.lastname@example.org
Programmatic Agreement Info
To comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Tonto National Forest developed a Programmatic Agreement (PA) and included it in Volume 5, Appendix O of the final EIS. The PA was created in cooperation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Office, tribes and other consulting parties. The PA contains an agreed upon process for identifying, evaluating and addressing adverse effects to historic properties associated with this undertaking.
