ASC-N mailing list is maintained by the Amateur Seismic Centre (ASC). The information contained within the messages
sent out on this list are intended for informational purposes
only and are preliminary in nature! They contain early estimates of
earthquake locations obtained from Indian and global seismological
networks for earthquakes in the Subcontinent. These data can be expected
to differ with final estimates available days or weeks later.
