Seismicity of Suwawa Timur area based on analysis of earthquake: the depth and magnitude
North Sulawesi is an area close to the earthquake source due to tectonic processes such as active faults. This study aims to analyze the earthquake in Suwawa Timur from the earthquake depth and magnitude data. The method used in this research is a qualitative method by collecting and processing earthquake data. The analysis was carried out by creating a seismicity map of the Suwawa Timur area. The map shows that the earthquake points in Suwawa Timur are at shallow earthquakes (0 - 70 km) and moderate earthquakes (70 - 300 km). Shallow earthquakes are usually sourced from active seismic movement activity. Lithological conditions and structural geology affect the magnitude and depth of the earthquake value. Zonation map relates to the epicenter point of Suwawa Timur. Suwawa Timur is dominated by minor earthquakes (0.0 - 3.9), light earthquakes (4 - 4.9), and there is one point of a moderate earthquake (5 - 5.9).
