figure 2 - part of Patterns in seismology and palaeoseismology, and their application in long-term hazard assessments - the Swedish case in view of nuclear waste management.

Figure 2. Dimensionless sketch (from Mörner, 1995) illustrating the remarkable long-term prediction by KBS (now: SKB) who analysed the seismicity during 25 yr, 1951–1975 (blue line), and made predictions for 100 000 to 1 million years (A: green line; KBS, 1983). Mörner (1995; B observation) showed that seismic energy release changed drastically a century ago and that Sweden was a highly seismic area during the time of deglaciation some 10 000 yr ago. Furthermore, the seismic activity increased drastically in the mid-1980s (invalidating the green line extrapolation). This indicates that palaeoseismology is the key to serious long-term seismic hazard prediction.
