Spatial Statistical Analysis of Earthquakes in Kyrgyzstan
Main Article Content
The purpose of this study is to apply spatial statistical analysis to earthquake epicenters in Kyrgyzstan and its surrounding areas. Geographical Information System (GIS) has been used for seismic catalog between the years 1900 and 2016. The mean center and directional distribution methods were applied in order to determine where earthquakes compose clusters of different magnitudes. The Average Nearest Neighbor, the Global Moran’s Indexand the Getis-Ord General G techniques were used to investigate the spatial pattern analysis of earthquakes. The Anselin Local Moran’s Index, and the Getis-Ord Gi* techniques were used to examine the spatial distribution of earthquake events in terms of where earthquake hot spot areas are located.
