This seismic source model is derived from the EMCA model for Kyrgyzstan plus a 200 km buffer zone. It is modified based on the extended earthquake catalogue. The area source model for the study region was defined within EMCA (Ullah, 2015; Ullah et al., 2015) by mainly considering the pattern of crustal seismicity down to 50 km, although tectonic and geological information, such as the position and strike distribution of known faults, were also considered when available. This has been reviewed by other members of the project (Richard Walker). This version of the data has been modified by including hypo-central depth and focal mechanism distributions.
