Galina Kulikova is undertaking her PhD at the Institute of Earth and Environmental Science, University of Potsdam, under the supervision of apl. Prof. Frank Krüger. Her research project is part of the PROGRESS project which aims to interlink the geosciences and climate research with the political and administrative sciences. Galina’s research is focused on the determination of the source processes of large (M>=7.0) earthquakes which occurred during the last 100 years in the Tien-Shan region*. The poster presents preliminary results of the Chon-Kemin earthquake (3rd January 1911) based on the analyses of historical digitized analogue data. It is the strongest earthquake in the history of Tien-Shan region for which instrumental recordings are available and one of the strongest intracontinental earthquakes in XX. century. The poster shows the result for relocation, the focal mechanism and the seismic moment of the Chon-Kemin earthquake.

* Tien-Shan region: For this study we consider Tien-Shan region not exactly Tien-Shan mountain belt, but the rectangular area from 38°N to 45°N, and from 68°E to 90°E.
