Isoseismic lines sketched according to historical records
The areas with different edge lines and colors in the figure are the intensity ranges of different
earthquake cases. Tangshan, 7.8/1976, is marked on the lead line of the isoseismal line, indicating
the magnitude, year of occurrence and epicenter location of the earthquake.
