Acknowledgements & Credits
Although the Amateur Seismic Centre (ASC)
has been run & maintained by myself since its conception in June
2000, a few people have helped keep it
informative and regularly updated. I
greatly appreciate their timely comments &
criticisms and helpful suggestions. First and foremost, my family
and friends, without whose constant encouragement & support, this
website would have never have seen the light of day. I appreciate
advice, guidance and constructive criticism from many quarters
especially from Roger Bilham.
The ASC formerly ran from
Geocities and became a '.org' thanks to Bharat & Kishore
Dots & Coms in Vadodara, a full
year after initiating services.
Maps on this website were created using the freely available
Generic Mapping Tool software,
developed by P. Wessel and W.H.F. Smith [Ref:
Wessel, P., and Smith, W.H.F., “Free software helps map and
display data”, EOS, Vol.72, 1991]. The banner on
top of all the pages on this website was also creating using this
software and shows historical earthquakes in the Narmada Rift,
stretching from the Gulf of Khambat in the west to the jungles of
central India in the east.
My final thanks goes to all those who have provided tiny tidbits
of information in the form of felt reports, photographs, personal
accounts, as well as access to archives which have helped immensely
to shed light on some important historic & recent
