Abstract

For regional earthquakes in the Korean Peninsula, the seismic Lg waves have the largest amplitude. Our researches in South Korea found that more reasonable low ${Q_{Lg}}^{-1}$ was obtained as the inter-station distances increase. The other methods such as coda normalization method and multiple lapse time window method also produced that the low ${Q_{Lg}}^{-1}$ is related to the values of seismically inactive region.
